This is what I have been working on, a MINION!
Isn't he just so handsome!
|Standing tall and smart! I called him my Minion No. 1|
I really love the minions in the movies Despicable Me and it has never crossed my mind that I could actually made one minion for myself. All thanks to Stephanie who helped to make this wish came true!
You can get the pattern from All About AMI. I do agree the pattern is quite intricate for a beginner, many parts to make and it took me quite a while to work this out but I can tell you, it really well worth the effort.

I love the pattern cos all parts all removable. This made it more challenging to make but at the same time it made the minion more fun to play with.
During this time, the movie Despicable Me2 was showing but there was no plushie or whatever kind of toys available in the shops. My friend's 12 years old daughter wanted the minion badly and urged her mummy to approach me to make one for her. In the end, I decided to let her adopt my Minion No. 1. It is very hard for me to part with my first piece but I guess I could make another one for myself but not the little girl. And, I believe she will take good care of my No. 1.
So goodbye my handsome boy!

|See how tall is my No. 1|
The little plastic minions were Happy Meal toys from McDonald's which my hubby queued up for. There was a big rush for them.
