Since i found this  http://allaboutami.tumblr.com/post/11585794742/minionpattern  i had to make one. I think the Creator  is Awesome 🙂

i soon found my self making many more.

Image

i didn’t use button’s  for this Super Girl Minion.

i will note : i used Pipe cleaners for the arms. folded a jumbo pipe cleaner, they helped a lot.

I did change the pattern of the feet i didn’t like the way it was made, and i made my pockets one row bigger to make sure my Gru sign fit.

Since i don’t really use plastic eyes and what not. I would rather made them.  I did.

Image

Here is a close up of the Eye.

What you will need~

Black, White, and  Brown,  Light Blue.

very little yarn used in these parts.

worst weight yarn.

i hope this helps some one with the eye not put in this free pattern link above.

ok Next i had to make a mouth.  so…………. you guessed it.

Here it is.

Image

now the mouth seem simple enough but was not sure about how to get the teeth to look the way i wanted well as it turns out  there happen tp be a Corner to Corner Craze going on and  yep i used the stitch to make that happen 🙂 lol

ok Here it is….

Mouth 1~ Big laughing mouth. In Black~

Row 1)  Magic ring, 5 sc,  do NOT JOIN with a sl st. pull loop to tighten up ring.

Row 2)  2 sc each st 10 sc total

Row 3)  sc, 2 sc next st around.

Row 5)  sc next 3 sts, 2 sc next st, around.

you can make this a row or 2 shorter as well.

Row 4)  sc next 2, 2 sc next st, around,

Row 5) sc next 3, 2 sc next st, around.  Cut  leave long tail to sew with.

Teeth~ in White~   the way this works a ” Tooth is made in 2 chains” With a Cluster St. of only 2.

For 6 teeth~ using a Cluster stitch of 2 to make your tooth.

ch 15, work cluster st in 4th and 5th from hook, ch 2, sl st in last st made,* ch 2, work cluster st in next 2 sts, ch 2, sl st in last st made.* repeat to end. leave long tail to sew with.

4 teeth~   ch 8, plus your chain 3  = 11 total. for your 4 teeth.

sew middle of  teeth just above mouth so the teeth are over the mouth edge before sewing mouth to Body as well as tongue.

Tongue~ in Red~

Ch 7,  work cluster st, in 4th and 5th from hook, ch 2, sl st to last st, ch 2, work cluster st in last 2.  ch 2, sl st to last st.  Cut,  leave tail to sew with sew to mouth before mouth is sewed to body.

Since i am a lefty, i made this 2 ways so  you don’t have to use the back side.

i think #1 is Right Handed. and other Left Handed since it worked well for me and the other was backwards to me.

Gru sign #1 Right Handed.

Light Blue~   magic ring ch 2, 4 sc, ch 1,

4 sc ch 1,

4 sc ch 1,

3 sc, hdc, ch 3, sl st to ring. Cut, leave long tail to sew with. slowly pull your magic ring now not too much. weave in this end.

magic ring ch 3, hdc, 3 sc,

ch 1, 4 sc,

ch 1, 4 sc,

ch 1, 4 sc, ch 2, sl st to ring  Cut, leave long tail to sew with.

slowly pull your magic ring now not too much. weave in this end.

you will want to check it against, your pocket, make sure your “G” sign is centered and just inside your  yellow Dash Line.

After sewing this G on,

use some Black~ and just out line the G out side edge and in center using the  yarn to  work over the center to hold the blue thread and cover it, and define your G<~ line better.

all this done before pocket is sewed down to overall’s.

My adventures not over yet. i am still making more.

I have made a shorter chubbier~~ one all i did there was ~

Increase the Round 2 more Rows.

( in other words i increased the head 2 rows from the last increase at 7 sc, 2 sc in the next st, around to =  9 sc, 2 sc in the next st. i added 2 more rows.)

then~ i decreased the 55 Rows of sc, by only 5 rows. then worked as you would to close.

nothing any different other than i used~ Mouth 2 for Chubbier minion. it’s just a better one.

i hope this helps some one making their minions.

We all need a little help.

Amigurumi Hippo doll

Amigurumi Hippo Doll

Gloria

Gloria , is her name 🙂

I found my self asked to make a Hippo for a friend, so i went looking didn’t find too many i really liked, the ones i did like had no pattern to work.

So looking threw pictures i set off to make this hippo come alive to share with others 🙂

To work this hippo you will need to know the Magic ring,and  sc2tog.

Also i crocheted the skirt on to the body, If you prefer another way then do that.

With the eyes i crocheted them , If you prefer plastic eyes then do that.

Lastly i made the skirt and socks simple, If you prefer a different st then do that.

As for the details on Hippo, do  any thing else you would like to do 🙂
