Another minion anyone???


Thanks for coming back.

Thank you so much for the comments on the dinosaur. I have tried to comment but not sure if it worked! But I really do appreciate you taking the time to comment. I will be making another dino very soon. x

Anyhoo, as a thank you for my friend who has helped me with my college work (and will continue to do so I hope) I made a minion. I made it into a key ring. Think i should have pinned the parts together first though as he looks a bit wonky! She loves him. :D

And I have made another.......

My niece is princess mad so I have been looking for patterns I can adapt into a princess. I found this doll pattern http://jennyandteddy.blogspot.com/2011/05/free-amigurumi-sweet-girl-leena-pattern.html and thought i could maybe change it a little to a princess.

So here she is. Snow White. Will have to wait until end of November before my niece gets it but am thinking of maybe making more for xmas presents. Maybe Sleeping Beauty or Belle next time. Must buy flesh coloured wool though as white looks a bit scary!! :P

I have just started another minion for my cousins little boy for Christmas (how organised am I!!) and then will make another dino i think.

Back soon

Thanks for stopping by.

I havent been doing much crafty stuff recently as college has started back and I am behind with my homework so trying very hard to catch up.

But I have made a dinosaur. I was looking for new patterns (like you do) and my youngest saw a picture of a dinosaur he liked. I then had to buy the pattern and being impatient that I am I then had to go up in the loft to try to find green wool for him.

As you can see I ran out of wool and had to use another green I found. But I still think he looks good as does my youngest although he is actually for my nephew so need to buy green wool to make one for my youngest, and a different green to make one for my eldest and a pink for my daughter.

I have also had a disaster with a teddy bear. I have an arm that is bigger than the leg none of it looks right. i think i must have used different sized crochet hooks so have given up on that for now as I will need to buy more wool to finish it.

Instead I started on another minion as a thank you for my friend who has done witness statements for my college work for me (and she will probably be asked for lots more so have to keep her sweet!!! lol)

I am seeing her Monday and am planning on having him finished by then. Hopefully finished tonight.

See you soon. x

Finished in Time! Yay :D

Good Afternoon

Last night I finished the minion for my eldest. It is his birthday tomorrow and I cant wait to see his face. I really do think this is the best on yet and, even better, no blisters!!! :D

Before I forget, this is the linky to the blog I got the pattern from (obviously I amended it slightly) http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2010/07/despicable-minion.html

Now that I have started making things again I dont want to stop. College work can wait, I might start on a Hello Kitty crochet cat for my daughter for xmas. Best get searching for a pattern. :D

I hope to have something new very soon.
