My niece saw a post where someone had made some minion beanie hats. She asked me to make her one. Then I don't know how he became a "full size" version of the minion. He stands 18" tall. He wasn't meant to be this big, I forgot that acrylic yarmn stretches and as I was stuffing him he just grew and grew. Now my 5 yr old wants one (that's him in the last pic). Will probably make him a smaller version. But here you go, enjoy!




I put fiberfill behind his eye to make it pop out.


His hair, I just unraveled the 4 ply yarn after I "hooked rugged" it to his head.


See how big he is. I may tell my niece it got lost and keep it. The only problem with that is she comes to my house everyday afterschool. So I may just give it to her.  Cheesy

Made one for myself. Not as large only 4 1/2" tall, here he is posing with the 6" tall one.
