With so much going on in the world these days, it’s important we take the time for ourselves. Whether it’s going for a walk to clear our minds, playing with the kids, taking a bath or even crafting! For me, making something with my own hands is a complete stress-reliever. Maybe we just need to be a bit more sloth-like at times.

If a sloth is your spirit animal or someones else you know, head over to our Etsy shop to purchase these felt sloth ornament patterns and make your own.
