Stuffy Love -- Sloths!!!

A few Christmases ago, my hubby and I did a road trip around Costa Rica and made a special pilgrimage to the sloth orphanage. I'm sure by now you have probably come across baby sloths in your internet travels, but if not you can watch several excellent videos about them here.

 Needless to say, I am obsessed with baby sloths. Recently I tried to re-create both the two-toed and three-toed varieties with crochet. I don't have a pattern written down as such... yet.  Let me know if you're interested and I will work on putting one together in the New Year.

A two-toed sloth has two toes on his front legs, and three toes in the back.

Twins!

I have one three-toed sloth available in my shop at the moment (the one on the left) but the other two are currently being held hostage by my husband. He grows rather attached to these things.

As I said, let me know if you're interested in a pattern, and for which sloth, and I will start putting them together.

Happy Crafting!
