    Just discovered your site. I am liking some of these patterns. Can’t wait to finish the 2 projects I have going now so I can start on some new ones. I have gotten so bad that even my teenage son comes in and says, “oh, you are looking at MORE things to make aren’t you?” Excited to see so many baby things. We have several new and one on the way in my family.

      Crochet is an addiction, that’s for sure! 😀 A good one though, I think! You’re very welcome, and thank you for commenting!

    These are the funniest things I have seen in a long time. My grandkids will love them. I’m making a book of them and other amigurumis and let the grandkids pick which minion they want. My whole family loves these guys. My husband thinks the one in the french maids uniform is his favorite. Thanks for sharing these patterns. I’ll have hours of fun.
