My dad asked me if I would be able to crochet one for him and I knew I could because I had previously seen a pattern for one on the internet. Well, everyday since seeing "Despicable Me", my dad had reminded me about how much he would want a minion to sit on his desk at work. My mom found the pattern for me and since I needed some more yarn, a trip to Michael's craft store was definitely in order. I had a little bit of free time last night and today, so I figured I could make one very quickly. It took almost the whole day, but I got him finished. *Yes, I am aware that the minions arms seem to be uneven, but they really aren't. I measured them and I just positioned them differently so he wouldn't fall forward*
Here he is:
Now I have been recruited to make a minion for my best friend's older sister and if I have left over yarn, I might make one for myself too! :)
Please excuse the lack of updates over the next few days. I might try to make more minions tonight (I am totally on a roll here) and I am waiting for a pattern to be translated from Spanish. Plus I think my knitting beckons to be worked upon. Besides, I think my wrists need a break from all the needlework anyway.
This pattern was made by Linda Potts. If you want to make a minion of your own, please visit Wolfdreamers OTH blog here. She has many other amigurumi too!
