"Sew a Sloth! is an easy-to-sew pillow pal. This Sloth has extra long arms. In my version, the arms aren’t stuffed to make them easier to wrap around for hugs. This Sloth is not suitable for infants and toddlers because the plastic eyes and nose and the arms could pose a hazard. If you decide to gift your Sloth to someone far off, ship the Sloth pillowcase by itself with a gift card for the pillow insert to save on shipping! This sloth softie pattern also includes a short video tutorial for adding safety eyes to fabric. I also made the pillow case an envelope closure so the cover is easy to remove for washing in case of spills or other messes. Finished Size Fits a 12” x 16” (30.5 cm x 40.5 cm) pillow form. Tools Sewing machine. Tapered Tailor’s Awl. Pins. Rotary cutter, cutting mat, and acrylic ruler. Fabric Scissors. Iron and ironing surface. Embroidery needle.
