Minion Mania!

http://pukado.blogspot.nl/2013/08/minion-mania.html

As mentioned before, my kids fell in love with the Minions after watching Despicable Me 2.
And to be honest, I did as well, they are just too cute and I want a couple of them running around the
house! Life would be so much easier, wouldn't it?



So I made a little Minion. The kids were fighting over it... so I made another one, Minion 2.0. But then
I had to make another one, a bigger one.. Minion XL

So I have 3 Minions flying around the house!



So here's the pattern. You can download a printer friendlier version here!
