To prepare for handmade holidays again this year, I decided to get a head start on some fun projects.

Minions we top of the list!

My two little cousins out in Vancouver have taken to the minions that I made for my kids. Well at least they were shown the pictures of the minions and declared them to be awesome.

That's reason enough for me to make one for each of them for Christmas.

Since I was making minions for my cousins anyway, I thought why not make a bunch for family and friends who might like one? Several people have expressed interest in purchasing one should I decide to sell them. Unfortunately, minions are trademarked so I can't sell them on any commercial site like Etsy.

But I can sell them to my friends :D

So I started sewing...

and sewing...

and sewing...

First I made Daves. The one with the D on the pocket is for my cousin Devin.

Then I made Stuarts. Well I'm not quite done the one for my cousin Caitlyn, but the other three are already up to shenanigans around the house.

The kids set them all up to watch a puppet show.

And here they are posing for a photo.

I'll be having a little holiday/birthday open house in order for people to come over and purchase one of these minions if they want. More details on that coming soon.

***The real reason behind making so many minions is to earn money to purchase a new TV. Seriously... we've been watching our poor broken TV through weird ass lines across the top of the screen. We need a new one! But neither of us will use our money to buy one when there are so many more important things to consider... you know... like food and winter gear for the kids....
I figure if I can make some extra money - money that we wouldn't normally have - then that could be spent on a TV without too much guilt, right?****
