If you’ve ever felt like a sloth might be your spirit animal, then this embroidery pattern is for you. I made this cute little sloth embroidery hoop that I’m sharing free today. It’s a very easy embroidery pattern since most of it is lines. Perfect beginner embroidery project!
I was tempted to add the word “meh” to it somewhere, but thought I would leave it without words this time. There’s an idea for you in case you are feeling extra “meh” when you stitch this one though. Isn’t he cute?!
To stitch this sloth embroidery pattern, you’ll need:
- free sloth embroidery pattern (Instructions to download are at the bottom of this post.)
- 6 inch embroidery hoop
- white linen fabric (Read about the best embroidery fabric.)
- Embroidery Floss (DMC colors: 3781, 3790, 963, 912, 894, 3833, 645, 310, and 822)
- tracing supplies (Learn how to transfer an embroidery pattern.)
- felt for backing (Learn how to back an embroidery hoop with felt.)
Mr. Sloth is hanging from a branch with flowers and berries. The flowers are made using my favorite woven wheel stitch, and the berries are french knots. The leaves are lazy daisy stitches. I don’t know what kind of tree would really have these big flowers on it, but it sure looks pretty!
The sloth itself, is all outlined in a stem stitch, but you can use your favorite outline stitch. I prefer a stem stitch since it looks like one, consistent line. You could even fill him in with a long and short stitch if you wanted to go for a different look. Of course, that would make this a bit more of an advanced project. It would be so cute though!
I hope you have lots of fun stitching this easy embroidery pattern. It’s one that a beginner can manage but can easily be modified to make it more of a challenge. Do I have any other sloth lovers out there? I don’t know how you can’t be after seeing this cutie!
