I made some baby sloth amigurumi.
Each one uses almost a whole yarn bon bon. I think one bon bon is about 10g of yarn.
They have magnets in their front paws to hold them together

Awesome quintet of colorful super lazy critters!  The magnet closures were a great idea for these clinging animals.  I like the green one, because I've read that actual sloths sometimes look green because they move so slowly that algae has a chance to colonize and grow in their fur!

These are so so cute!! I especially love the idea of the magnets inside. Very clever.

That is so nuts!! I'm off to look at pictures of green sloths...

I appreciate you using a smaller hook. It gives them a very tight look.

And they're so dang cute!

Now that is an interesting piece of trivia!

Ladybugs - won't he be surprised!!!  (FYI everyone - I made these for a personal swap for Ladybugs as gifts for her family  Cheesy )

Oooh goodness, I want to pet them all! In the thumbnail photo, the way you're holding them (or they're clinging to you  Cheesy), it almost looked like you'd crocheted "brass knuckle" gloves, with sloths in place of a harmful weapon. I kind of love that notion as well: Replacing a dangerous element with sloths. Bravo!

calluna, well, technically I guess a sloth could "get you".  It would just take awhile!   Grin
