I've been making minions for about 8 months for a giant minion filled gift box for my sister. I actually gave these little boxes to her filled with other minion earrings and accessories. I wrote on her box "Every Evil Genius Needs Minions" and all told there were about seventy minions in five mediums. Sooo much fun and insanely hard to keep a secret. I've been dying to post these but I knew she'd find them.
I picked up this cute little winged horse at Michael's and turned it into a unicorn. I forgot to take a pic before I sewed the horn on though! I crocheted the horn and sewed a button and some beads onto the ears. The hair I curled with chopsticks and my flat iron. (Dampen the hair, roll it around the chopstick and then put a towel around that and held it for about 20 seconds) The wings are detailed with sequins sewn on. Hope you like it!
I made this little minion scene for my sister's birthday. They all have a little L on their chest for her name too. Each one is about 2 inches tall. The mediums are clay and paper, the hair is plastic coated wire that bonds with the clay when it is baked. Each minion took about 6-8 hours and I had a blast the entire time. I was so excited to give these to her and her reaction made all the time and effort more than worth it.
These two are my favorites
Most of the scene together
Some in progress pics
I love the reaction of the one watching the other one eat the cake. The tiny little hats and tiny little noise maker were a blast to make!
The card says happy birthday in Banana Language and all of them signed the card for her
I made all the presents out of a piece of cereal box and then wrapped them in various pretty papers and added ribbons and gift tags
