If you could be lazy with any Pokémon, Snorlax is the one you should choose. Known for sleeping in inconvenient locations, the roly-poly pocket monster has a giant belly that’s perfect for relaxation and snoozing. Amina of Knot Again by Amina has created a real-life way for you to snuggle with Snorlax. She crocheted a six-foot-long Sleeping Monster that is an unconventional bean bag with the Pokemon’s arms, feet, sleepy smile, and best of all, a super cuddly midsection.
Using blanket yarn and stuffing of shredded foam, Amina has produced a product that’s the spitting image of Snorlax. Achieving this likeness and size was a big undertaking. “It took a few months, not including the time to plan,” she shares with My Modern Met. But this massive endeavor was a great way for her to test her creative limits—something important to the creative crafter. “I’m always trying to push past my last efforts,” Amina admits. “It’s great that I can do that while bringing joy to myself and others.” Snorlax won’t be the last of her oversized amigurumi, either. “I’m actually hoping to make a giant Totoro next!”
