Attack of the Minions

Faye Minion Hat

Some of you may not know this, but Minions are kind of a big deal around here. Not only does (almost) everyone love the little yellow creatures but one of the earliest crochet projects attempted by Faye was the Minion hat above.

I however may have started taking things a little too far.

In fact I fear it’s turning into an unhealthy obsession, at least that’s what the doctors tell me.

In the meantime, this is the best I can do without the funds, equipment or prerequisite scientific expertise to make my own:

Not our own recent history, like the soldiers of the first world war.

I kind of want to do a bunch of soldiers through history as minions.

Not even the plant-life is safe from my Minion addiction, as demonstrated by my attempt to draw lavender and a daisy.

At this point I either need professional help or some actual Minions.
