Assembling

Sew on the face, then the spots over the face. The outer corners should be directed downwards.
Sew on the eyes over the spots.
Embroider the nose in the center between the eyes, it should be on the same level with the eyes.
Sew on the arms and the legs.
Embroider three claws on each paw.

Make a tuft on the sloth’s top head. Take a piece of main yarn and make a loop with the help of the hook under the first row. Cut the ends of the thread at the desired length and fluff the ends.
If you crocheted with some fluffy yarn, use the velcro tape to comb the toy and make it fluffier.
The size of the finished toys made of Drops Alpaca, Drops Nord is about 7 cm (2,8 inches), the size of the finished toys made of YarnArt Jeans is about 8 cm (3,2 inches).
