In honor of the recent release of Despicable Me 2 (which was a fun flick, even though we had no children with us), here is the pattern for some crochet mini Minions! Aren’t they adorable? They would look great adorning someone’s cube at work, or stuffed in a toddler’s chubby little hand. :)

Last week, I decided to crochet my way through the Avengers. By combining two different Cthulhu patterns and nixing the tentacles, I managed to get the look I wanted. I made Black Widow, The Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, and Hawkeye. Hawkeye was the most difficult to recreate since, in the film, he wears mostly black which makes him a bit more difficult to place than, say, Captain America. Still, I added a little bow to give a heavy hint as to his identity. The Hulk’s my personal favorite. I just love his angry eyebrows.

Hot, summer days are nearly upon us, but that doesn’t mean we have to solely embrace swimsuits and suntan lotion. We can hold onto that last little bit of winter. . .by making a cuddly, cute yeti friend.
I wrote this pattern because I saw plenty of adorable yeti patterns online and yet not a single one of them represented what I like most in my amigurumi: little, bitty bodies and very large heads. Here’s a yeti pattern that embraces both of those things, and I think it’s pretty cute for such a ferocious beastie.
KitLaurie’s Kaylee (found here) is just too cute in her fancy gown and crooked smile. She looks all ready to head out to a swanky shindig in her outfit–that comes complete with gloves and a yummy strawberry. Kaylee was made using a pattern found here. Or if you’re not a crocheter, don’t despair. KitLaurie takes commissions over on Tumblr.
Hannah081986, a poster over at Craftster, recently uploaded some pictures of the Sally doll from “The Nightmare Before Christmas” that she recently made.
“Sally is complete. Jack finally has a partner. She was fun to make. She stands about 18 inches tall. Her dress is made from felt pieces, and she is hand painted. What do you think? The movie is very dull colored, so she make look a bit bright but it gives her personality haha <3 She and Jack were made for my niece, she is IN LOVE with Nightmare before Christmas, so, naturally, I had to make them for her.”
For anyone interested in their own Sally doll, there is a free pattern on Ravelry for a crocheted version of a patchwork doll, courtesy of Irene Strange. While the Ravelry version isn’t named for Sally, take a look at her and decide for yourself.
