The day my daughter said to me: “Mum, you should design a woven sloth!”, turned out to be a happy one :)
I had always liked sloths, but until I started designing one, I didn’t realize how incredibly enchanting they are.
Their sweet nature is so clear to see on their faces!
I’ve been weaving and selling sloths in my booth at Maker’s Faires and Artisan Markets for more than a year and a half now, and people just love them- they always spark a chortle or a grin.
My daughter in law wants me to make one for her to hang on her spinning wheel, so I got out my potholder loom today and started working on one for her.
She told me that this week is ‘International Sloth Week’, so I thought… okay….
it’s time to publish my pattern in honour of the sweet slowpokes!
The pattern is available in my etsy shop:
Happy Sloth Week!
