WHO DOESN’T LOVE A CUTE SLEEPING SLOTH?  THIS CROSS-STITCH PATTERN IS AN ADORABLE VALENTINE’S DAY PROJECT!

Introducing the Valentine Sloth, an absolutely adorable cross-stitch pattern!  I don’t know anyone who can resist the cuteness of a sloth, myself included.

This little guy is covered in hearts for Valentine’s Day, but just think how cute he would look in a nursery or, if you’re like me, in a home office or sewing room!

Let’s take a closer look!

 

 

About the VALENTINE SLOTH Cross Stitch Pattern

  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Finished Design Size: This pattern measures 6.0″ x 39″ (15.2 x 9.8 cm) unframed when stitched on 14-count Aida cloth
  • Stitches Used: full cross-stitches

 

This easy pattern is a great project for beginner stitchers as it uses full cross-stitches only.
