I have been slightly obsessed with sloths lately. I have my good friend Catherine to thank for that. She sent me a video of a baby sloth, and I was overcome by how incredibly weird and adorable these little creatures were. It was Catherine's birthday last month, so I decided that I would make her a sloth of her very own!
I started off with a couple of sketches
And then made the body out of felt
And gave it a wire skeleton so that the legs would be posable.
I covered the toes in fun foam and then made the legs out of felt and attached them
I sewed everything together, stuffed him up a little and gave him a friendly little face.
I got my mom to hold up a paper towel roll branch for him to hang off of. She was also enjoying a caramel apple sucker...
