Minion 2.0

My love for minions never ends.  A couple of weeks ago I shared with you a new minion in progress here, and now he’s finished and has relocated to his new Gru!

Minion Madness, found on missneriss.com

I’m so happy with the way he turned out, I think he’s even better than the first one I made.  The next phase is to write a pattern for him so I can share the minion goodness with everyone!

Hello Minion! Found on missneriss.com

 

He’s much bigger than other minions I’ve made, and quite a bit fatter.  He’s the perfect size for a toddler to play with, and sturdy enough that he doesn’t have to sit on a shelf out of reach.  He’s a real toy.

I used Drops Paris in yellow and denim and some scrap in white, grey and black for the detailing.  I used felt for the mouth and a 10mm safety eye.

 

You can also see more pics, and follow me, on Instagram:

Finished another minion, one eye instead of two, a bit shorter and fatter, perhaps even a bit cuter. #minion #amigurumi

Wednesday WIP

One of this week’s works in progress:

I still love minions, can’t ever get enough of them.

Meanwhile, I’m also working on another Spring Shawl, plus a kangaroo and red panda from the third Zoomigurumi book and have received the amazing Alize bamboo yarn from yarnstreet.com to make my Convergence top.  Busy busy.

Oh, and I’m about to start a Mandala Crochet-along with the Creative Crochet Collective on Facebook and I’m going to make this mandala:

What are you doing on this lovely Wednesday?

Meet Kevin the Minion

Here he is, finished!

I loved making him, and it was a great experiment without a pattern.  Obviously with my critical eye there are loads of changes that I would make, so am considering making even more, and writing the pattern down.  Plus I’d love to make the possessed minion too…

What do you think?  Worth the investment in time?

WIP Wednesday

Wednesday #WIP. My first #amigurumi #minion, totally making it up as I go along. #crochet

It’s taken ages, but finally I get to make Kevin the minion! I’m loving this little guy, and can’t wait to see how he ends up when he’s all done.

I initially went searching for a pattern, but the only one that I loved was All About Ami’s but it was much too big, so I decided to make my own.

He’s working up quickly too, which is what I love about amigurumi projects – instant gratification!

How much do you love minions?  Probably not as much as I do….
