I bought this kit in The Works but I was in an actual store on the high street. They do not appear to have it online but there are two similar kits in Hobbycraft:
I purchased the kit because it was only £1 so not a big risk and because I thought it might be a great introduction to sewing for kids.
When I opened the kit I was pleasantly surprised at the contents:
The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. All the parts are included and the face items are self-adhesive. The only extra item that I needed was a needle.
The first task is to sew around the sloth including the feet and a hanging loop. It does not say how to do this but the picture on the packet is self-explanatory. It is a simple running stitch with pre-punched holes so great for kids. Make sure you include the stuffing before completing the sewing!
It is then simply a case of attaching the facial features as shown on the picture and tying his scarf on.
In summary, I thought it was a delightful little kit that resulted in a cute decoration for the tree in very little time. It is perfectly achievable for a child or someone who does not do much crafting. No great skills or equipment needed.
