Can you keep a secret!


I am bursting with excitement for my little boy’s birthday tomorrow. I say little, he will be 10 years old and he’s a great big tall lanky skinny thing.

Anyway, I have been beavering away making a crochet Minion for him and I have finished it and I have to show someone or else I will explode. But knowing I can trust you to keep a secret, here is my minion……


I initially searched the internet for pictures of minions to use as a resource and I stumbled upon this pattern: which has worked really well, although I did change a few things slightly. So all credit to Stephanie for her design.  Her blog is really worth checking out as she has lots of other really great designs there.

All of his clothes are removable but I tacked them on permanently so they don’t go awol.

My biggest issue with making him, unsurprisingly was my stupid big puppy who thinks its fun to run off with EVERYTHING, so in a very safe place I will put my minion …. until tomorrow.

Must hide him before the puppy runs off with him AGAIN……

I will post more pictures tomorrow when I’m not trying to hide him.

Have a great day.
