This smiley Sloth embroidery kit for beginners is a wonderful way to learn the basics of modern embroidery.
The DIY kit includes everything you need to make your own piece of tropical embroidery art. The stitch guide provides instructions and photos for each of the 10 embroidery stitches used; and the wooden display hoop means it's ready to hang once complete!
This version of my Sloth design - with a green background, rather than the original navy blue - has been created for Communidad Inti Wara Yassi, a wildlife sanctuary in Bolivia (more details below). £10 from each kit sold will be donated directly to their efforts toward rescuing, rehabilitating and caring for wild animals seized from illegal trafficking.
The kit includes: * 8 inch 'working' hoop * 8 inch display hoop * green fabric * backing felt * DMC embroidery threads * needle * dressmakers' carbon paper (for transferring the pattern) * paisley sloth pattern & stencil * comprehensive instructions for each stage of the project * 8 page stitch guide, giving practical instructions and tips on all the stitches you need
All you need to get started on your own lovely sloth are a pair of scissors and a pen!
Communidad Inti Wara Yassi (CIWY) is a Bolivian non-governmental organisation dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and care of wildlife that has fallen victim to illegal trafficking and other harm. They collaborate with the Bolivian authorities to enforce the law, to seize and rescue animals from poachers and merchants, as well as zoos when conditions do not meet legal requirements. As Bolivia’s leading organisation in the fight for animal rights and wildlife care, they conduct educational projects locally and nationally, as well as research projects that support their conservation efforts.
