If you have seen the Despicable Me films, you may have noticed that there are 3 different minion hairstyles, well my brother wanted a second minion (Ed the minion was his first) so I got to experiment with another variation – meet Bob:
I must admit, if I’d realised I’d be making a few minions I might have thought twice about all the fiddly details I put into them, they are definitely not a quick make, but at the same time I think it is those little details that make me love them so much.
Hopefully this isn’t a sign I’m going crazy, but I’m starting to imagine personalities for the minions! Bob’s neat hair and slightly awkward leg angle make him seem a bit more reserved and introverted than his friends while I think Ed is a bit of a rebel and a joker and Kevin is laid back, curious and tends to go with the flow.
Of course, after meeting a new friend, the minions wanted to go adventure seeking:
The next minion will be for my mum, who’s requested a girl minion. An interesting challenge and a chance to try yet another hairstyle…
