Oh my! I had no idea I could produce this... the pattern really is so great! And just look at that hair
This cheeky Minion's goggles and dungarees are removable, and Patch giggles so when he undresses the Minion as his feet are attached to his dungarees. Really, this does tickle Patch. I should have made the goggle strap a little tighter, and the dungarees straps but this just means that Patch's Minion has straps that cross at the back
The wool was purchased from the local (cheaper) old fashioned haberdashery and fabric shop, as opposed to the dreamy and pricey wool shop. After all, this is a child's toy and not one going to be cuddled next to a oh so soft baby's cheek. Surprisingly, my selection of cheaper wool is soft and can happily be cuddled next to Patch's still oh so soft cheeks. The wool is all James C Brett - the yellow is Supreme Baby DK in an inspiring colourway SNG15, the blue and grey are DK with merino DM8 and DM10 respectively, and the black is pure merino DK in PM9.
I did have fun with this make, busily crocheting in the sunny garden, at the beach and sitting in our dear friend's sister's castle. And have decided that a crochet toy gives a nicer finish than a knit. Somehow more sturdy.
I am hoping to show you something other than a toy make next time... I'm sure I have been doing other things...
