Finished a Crochet Project for a Friend...

Hello Friends!

While I was not successful in creating a single Easter card this season, I have finished a project I've been working on for several weeks. I'm pretty happy with the finished product(s).

A good friend of mine emailed me to ask if I'd be able to create an item she found online. Normally, I might say no, but she is a very good friend. :) Going by the picture alone and some of my crocheting background and patterns, I managed to cobble together a fairly decent replica of the picture she showed me. These are gifts for people working with her on an upcoming weekend event that is Hawaiian themed.

Are you ready??

 Hula Minions!
Aren't they so  fun and yes, funny?!
*Ü*


They are about 3 inches tall and I've attached them to a key chain.


Don't they look like they are ready to hula (or maybe do the Rockette kicks) here? 
Hee, hee!

So, this is what I have been working on lately. I'm happy to have been able to help out my friend with this project. 

I used size 10 crochet thread (Aunt Lydia's brand) and a size 1 crochet hook. I also used 6mm safety eyes. They are stuffed with fiberfill. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a lovely holiday and a happy Spring!

Hugs,
Jeanne

Love, love and love these (you have my address right to send them ;0) ) well jealous I had another go over the weekend and you would pee your pants of you saw my attempt I can do triangle pmsl that's how they end up, been on you tube but its so fast for this slow girl...

The chalks, right they are pencils that are chalk, I add white highlights so if I was doing a skirt the lighter fold would have a chalk line down it and I rub it with my finger to blend it in, cheating really but shhhh, it is great for cheeks too...

The pond that is frog spawn, the frogs are not about they are under the water, as soon as they pop up I shall photo them to show you how funny they are...

Have a great day sweetie, hugs Pops x
