As promised, here is a scheduled post while I am away as today is the day Despicable Me 2 is being release in Australia! God willing, when this post goes live, I will be somewhere in Switzerland!
As you may or may not have seen on this blog, I crocheted Stephanie’s (from All About Ami) Despicable Me Minion pattern back in October. At the time I mentioned that my little cousin loved my minion so much that she requested her own. Given we were a few months from Christmas at the time – I had just enough time to crochet one as her Christmas present. Above is the second minion with my first! You might notice that they have both been crocheted with the “wrong” side facing out. This was because I hadn’t realised the difference at the time.
My cousin wanted a one eyed minion so I adapted Stephanie’s pattern just the slightest – adding a few more rounds when creating the base of the Minion’s body (and overalls) and decreasing its height. I also made the goggle a bit bigger. Apart from these adjustments, I kept the Minion’s feet and arms the same as Stephanie’s original pattern.
My cousin named her Minion – Bobby. She seemed very pleased with Bobby, even though she knew I was making him for her.
Are you going to see Despicable Me 2? I am hoping that it might show on the plane trip home! Otherwise, I’m going to have to check it out when I get back. 🙂
