Awww... I started on this little baby sloth plush on Saturday, but wasn't able it finish it up til today, since I didn't realize I was out of poly fiberfill once he was ready for stuffin'. This was my only motivation for getting dressed and going to the store today. If it weren't for my need of stuffing, I would have probably spent the whole day in my PJs watching Netflix Instant and eating cough drop after cough drop!
This is my first plush with safety eyes! And I love them! Now that there's a hobby lobby here, I can actually buy them. The facial features are sewn on and made of felt, and his fluffy body is made from an old towel we were going to get rid of because it wasn't absorbant enough. I kept it, just in case. I'm glad I did, but sewing terrycloth/something as thick as a towel was a bit of a challenge. Luckily, it's forgiving because it hides the goofs, but it was a pain in the nerds.
I sewed velcro onto the paws, so he could hold on to various things. That velcro adhesive stuck to my sewing machine needle and gummed it up, dangit. Took me a while to clean off that goo, but I say this little sloth guy was worth it! Happy Monday!
