CraftingCon - my little minion

I'm over at Mae & K today as part of the CraftingCon series!  The theme for this month is villains, which I was really excited about when I signed up.  But then I realized that I don't really like villains, especially when I'm going to be dressing up my cute 3 year old :)  So I started searching for villains that people actually like and root for, and what better place to start than with my kids' movies.  It just so happened that my girls were re-watching Despicable Me for about the bajillionth time when I realized there's no cuter villain than an evil minion.  Sure, they're evil, but they are still so cute, which was really all I cared about.  Plus there's the added benefit that almost every three year old acts like an evil minion at some point in time, so the costume kind of suits Mae :)

I talked about the patterns I used on my post over at Mae & K, so you can head over there if you want to learn more.  Really this post is no more than a bunch of pictures that I feel like sharing since the wig took forever and a day to make and I want to share it as much as possible :)  So scroll down if you want to see more of my little minion!

  1. Hi, Where on Mae & K can I find how to make the wig?

    1. There is no tutorial for the wig because it was a pain to make and I did not want to write a tutorial for it ;)

  2. OMG! The wig has got to be my favorite part. A tutorial would be amazing, but it's understandable it being a pain, but it's amazing๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘I will be giving it a go for sure!!
