Minion Crocheting Pattern (Keychain, Coin Purse & Phone Case)


Recently, I love minions things very much, such as keychain and my mobile phone case cover. So, I have decided to make my own DIY minions. 

Since 2 years ago, I started crocheting. I remember that I started to learn crocheting during the end of my matriculation life, that was before I enter my university life. 
One day, I was shopping with my family. Since I was on my holidays, I had decided to do something that I have never done before. So, I have decided to learn crocheting. I first bought my crochet hook at the shop and since that shop does not sell yarns (quite weird, they sell only hooks but not yarns), so I went to another shop to buy yarns.

When I get back home, I started to learn those crocheting 'skills' through Youtube. Learning through videos was very helpful because I can understand easily and quickly. From here onward, I will crochet whenever it's my holidays especially my SEMESTER BREAK. So this is how I get started to CROCHETING.

Today, I would like to share three patterns that all about minions. Most of the patterns are what I've done before and I just adjust them to make them become Minion. 

1MINION PHONE CASE

This phone case pattern was actually from Hopeful Honey
THANKS FOR THE PATTERN!
I referred to the pattern and adjusted the size to fit my phone.
Also, I have added one more eye because I LOVE 2-EYES MINIONS. Haha!
I also changed the smile of the minion. 

2MINION MINI COIN PURSE

For this coin purse, I made the pattern myself based on my experience in crocheting.
