Leonard St Sloths in Fitzroy

At last! I can show you the very project that has kept me so very busy the past few weeks. I have created two, super loveable sloths for the Australian fashion label – Leonard St

These limited edition, collectable sloths are on display in the Leonard St Fitzroy store and are also available for sale. 

Leonard St – Fitzroy
132 Gertrude St
Fitzroy VIC 3065

Store Hours:
Monday – Saturday: 10am – 6pm 
Sunday: 11am – 4pm

A few facts about these sloths:

  • The sloths are made using a varied combination of doll making techniques, including hand stitching, needle felting and armature.
  • Both new and upcycled materials (Leonard St fabric offcuts) have gone into the making. The most prominent material used is felt.
  • The sloth dolls have armature, meaning they can be posed. Even the sloths' claws have armature.
  • The sloths are 95% hand sewn.
  • The sloths' clothing has been loosely inspired by Leonard St designs.
  • From conception to, pattern making and right down to the final stitch, the sloth project took 48 working hours. That's 24 working hours for each sloth.

Each sloth comes with:

  • Certificate of authenticity.
  • Miniature accessories – a bag and felt crafted coffee cup.
  • Box packaging, with a window view of the sloth inside.

Visit Leonard Street in Fitzroy and say hello to the sloths on display. For more information about these sloths and commissions send me an email.
