This is what I have been working on, a MINION! Isn’t he just so handsome!
I really love the minions in the movie 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 could get the pattern from All About AMI. I do agree with her that the pattern is quite intricate for a beginner, many parts to make and it took me quite a while to work that out but I can tell you, it really well worth the effort.
When I saw these beautiful dolls at AmigurumiBB‘s blog, I told myself I just have to make one. First, the dolls’ head shape attracted my attention. I have been making dolls with round spherical head and theirs is different. Secondly, I wanted to learn making fringe.
See my version. Initially I was flabbergasted to see the big face but now I have grew used to it. I called her my “Pao” (bun in Chinese) Girl. 😀
A few of my friends loved this doll as she has such sweet smile but they would not get it as a gift because of the doll’s dark skin color. I am totally surprised with their color discrimination. I like a person for who they are, definitely not be biased on their skin color! I love her more each time I brought her out.
Today, I have decided to make her some clothes. Don’t you agree she looks wonderful with the pink hat and outfit?
