Crochet Sloth Plush – Free Pattern

Crochet Sloth Plush Pattern - Free Pattern by Madi Paris exclusively for The Stitchin' Mommy | www.thestitchinmommy.com This pattern was designed by Madi Paris, exclusively for The Stitchin’ Mommy

I love sloths! They are my absolute favorite animal and have everything from a bag with a sloth on it to a blanket! So I decided adding a plush sloth that could casually hang around my room would be the perfect addition! I wrote this pattern myself so if there are any mistakes, please let me know and I will try to fix and clarify the issues. – Madi

Use tan yarn to sew a ‘V’ onto the front top portion of each arm/leg as shown in pictures, those are its nails.  Sew velcro onto the inside top of each arm/leg so that the arms can stick together and the legs can stick together allowing it to hang from items.

Attach eyes to the appropriate places on the face and use black yarn to stitch a nose onto the face between the eyes and slightly below.  Use black yarn to make stripes on the face by placing it from the eye, aimed down on an angle to the edge of the face.  See pictures for an example.

Stuff arms, legs, body, and head.  Attach face the the front of the head and place the bottom of the head onto the open hole on top of the body and attach.  Place arms/legs in the appropriate positions on the body and attach.  That’s it! Enjoy your new plush!
