Tinglefoot began in 2015 with a simple request from my boyfriend.
"What do you want for christmas?" I asked him.
"well, I love sloths!" was his reply.
and thus the first Tinglefoot sloth was born.
This misshapen, bright green, needle felted sloth was a far cry from the cute Tinglefoot sloths of today, with their huge eyes and plush fur that makes them just so lovable!
But it sparked a fascination with these beautiful creatures, which has helped me to combine both my love of art and animals to create interactive, unique and adorable pieces of huggable art.
Each piece is handmade by myself and takes several days to complete, I love the process of making them from the initial sculpting to the final fur being placed on their faces. The development from skeleton to cuddly creature is fantastic to experience. Although my favourite part has to be receiving images of the sloths in their new homes!

Who is behind
My name is Ryn Rose and I am the designer and maker here at Tinglefoot. I am 22 years old and from Nottingham in England. I'm currently studying a Masters degree in Textile design and I'm also a part time face painter!
I have four pet ferrets who are like my children! They're called Eugene, Bear, Dookie and Bubbles; they're the naughtiest, cutest and funniest pet I have ever owned and are definitely the biggest inspiration for the personalities for my sloths!
I also have another local business where I provide face painting for private parties or corporate events. Check it out at www.rynrose.co.uk
