Great job! He's gorgeous!  I have myself just made a Minion...have been meaning to for ages and just watched the movie again so made one.  I didn't see your pattern before I made it so made it up as I went as normal but we used a similar process...Yours is awesome, well done! Love Minions!

oo! I found a pattern for a minion on wolfdreamer's blog and my two oldest want me to make one for them both. Now sure I don't mind but I wanted also to make one for my 2month old as well and this little one will be perfect for her. Smiley Now I just need to figure out how to make a shrink ray so when the other two ask why it is so small I can tell them I shrunk it with my shrink ray.
Thanks for sharing your pattern with us. I love it. It's so cute. Smiley
