Our Green Sloth Cushion Embroidery Kit is the perfect beginners' DIY kit for modern hand embroidery.
This kit has everything that you need to embroider your own tropical sloth cushion cover - each one is designed to include ten types of embroidery stitch, and the guide included gives practical instructions and pictures for each one. The cushion cover included is premade, organic, and Fairtrade, with a zip opening - so no difficult sewing required, just the sloth embroidery! They're great for adding a jungle themed twist to any room - or as a gift for crafty friends!
This version of my Sloth design - with a green background, rather than navy blue - has been created for Communidad Inti Wara Yassi, a wildlife sanctuary in Bolivia (see below). £15 from each kit sold will be donated directly to their work toward caring for, rescuing, and rehabilitating wild animals seized from illegal trafficking.
This cushion kit contains:
* 8 inch embroidery hoop * Olive green cushion cover (45cm x 45cm) * DMC embroidery threads * needle & safety pins * dressmakers' carbon paper (for transferring the pattern( * sloth pattern & stencil * comprehensive instructions for each stage of the project * 8 page stitch guide, giving instructions and advice on all the techniques this project needs * iron-on interfacing (for securing the threads)
All you need to get started are a pair of scissors, a pen, and an iron!
Note that cushion filler/inner is not provided with this kit.
You can also stitch this design onto a bag to show off out and about - check out our Totes collection for more inspiration!
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.
