Announcement   Welcome to Sloth and Squid! Here you'll find adorable, personality-filled handmade plush friends to snuggle and love. You may call them plushies, stuffed animals, stuffies, or lovies; whatever you call them, we have a variety of fun characters to choose from, both real and fictional, to play with and cuddle.

I do the main construction of the plushies, and my girlfriend helps with the handsewing. She also designed the shop's logo. I plan to branch out into fidget toys and bags eventually, but for now, the main product is plushy friends to love!

I'm very open to custom orders; I have a variety of plush patterns I haven't had time to make and list yet, and several options to add accessories as well! Message me and we'll make your perfect plush friend together!

Follow me on Instagram for pictures of works in progress and other fun stuff! http://www.instagram.com/slothandsquid

For the month of July, 10% of purchases will go to the Sloth Conservation Foundation! http://slothconservation.com/how-to-help/adopt-a-sloth/ Ideally I'd like to be able to adopt a sloth, but if not, I'll still donate. My birthday is in July, and I (obviously) love sloths, so being able to help out would be a great birthday gift!

About

A story of polyfil stuffing and love.

My girlfriend and I were talking one evening about squids, and I found a pattern for an 8 foot long squid. The next day, we bought the supplies to make it, including a 10 pound box of polyfil stuffing. Anyone who's worked with polyfil can probably predict the next part: the squid was done and we'd barely made a dent in the amount of stuffing we still had!
I looked around for free plushy patterns, since I'm a broke college student, and I found Choly Knight's adorable plushies. I had enough fabric left over from the squid (who has been christened Aesnith!) to make a narwhal, so I did. And then I helped my girlfriend's daughter make one, and I thought, "Well, if we can find good prices for fabric, maybe I'll just make a bunch of plushies and sell them." We found good prices for fabric, obviously.

The shop name was kind of obvious to me. I love sloths, even going so far as to have an Instagram for my favorite plush sloth, Cinnamon. And this whole adventure started with a squid, so it just seemed natural to acknowledge that.

I do the main construction of the plushies, and my girlfriend helps with the handsewing. She also designed the shop's logo. I plan to branch out into fidget toys and bags eventually, but for now, the main product is plushy friends to love!
