This year is all about finishing things. I write that because I am so terrible at starting projects but not finishing them. For Christmas my mum bought me the cutest little sewing kit to make a sloth. I adore sloths, they are my favourite animal. Unfortunately it took me a while to start stitching this little kit.
The DIY embroidered doll kit from kiriki embroidery was to make a little sloth. There were a few different animals to choose from but I couldn’t resist the little sloth. I was surprised how small the box was but it contained a printed fabric panel, 5 colours of embroidery thread and stuffing.
The only thing not included was an embroidery hoop but I had plenty of these. I placed the fabric panel in the embroidery hoop, and snipped a piece of each thread and placed them on the guide, and started stitching.
I followed the pattern and added all the details before putting the panels together and stitching around my sloth. It only took a few evenings to finish off. I like the fact he is sitting up hugging his knees.
