Have you watch Minions 2015? We went for the Minions movie during the weekend and the kids laughed their heads off in the cinema. When I first saw the movie trailer a few weeks ago, I was in sudden shock that I have forgotten to share the Minions tutorial with you which I made end of last year. Oppsss…. how absent minded I am :s Find the tutorial in Page 2.
This Needle Felted Minions is about 4″ high, made from a rolled-up yarn balls as the sculptural core. The sculptural core is then wrapped with the wool followed by needle felt. It saves up a lot of wool with this method. You may add jingle bell in the body to make it rattles if you are making it as a toy for kid. You can even resize it to turn it to a bigger doll or a smaller charm. You may also adapt the basic shape of this Minion to make other character of needle felted Minions, tall needle felted Minions, single-eyed needle felted Minions, short needle felted Minions, baby needle felted Minions etc.
Love love love the Minions Stuart, Kevin, Bob and their fellow Minions colony. They are friendly, funny, innocently simple-minded and lucky on their thrilling journey. They worked as the henchmen for the world’s first female supervillain Scarlett Overkill and her husband Herb Overkill in the mission to steal the St. Edward’s Crown from Queen Elizabeth, and the adventure begins….
These small, yellow pill-shaped creatures who have existed since the beginning of time, evolving from single-celled organisms into beings who have only one purpose: to serve history’s most villainous masters. “Minions 2015” is in fact the prequel to the famous “Despicable Me” (2010) and its sequel “Despicable Me 2” (2013). Hence, you will see how Minions transform into this yellow pill-shape figure who are wearing denim overalls and goggles. Lastly, you will see what makes Minions works for Gru in “Despicable Me”.
