step 7 Minion Cell Phone Cover
Piecing everything together
When sewing all pieces together, I always recommend using the same colored yarn to seam everything together. This will give your work a nice, clean look.
step 5 Minion Cell Phone Cover
Place crochet hook at the top of your work (where the first 5 knitted rows are), and fold over hook. With tapestry need, sew your seam together. The hook acts as a tunnel to sew around, and then we will pull the icord through the tunnel. Once you have sewn your seam together, attach icord to crochet hook and pull through the tunnel we created.

Turn your work to where the wrong side is facing out and fold over in half. With appropriate colored yarn and tapestry needle, you are going to do a quick “whip stitch” along the seam of your work. You want to get as close to the edge as you possibly can, and don’t forget change to your different colored yarns to keep things looking nice.
Turn your work inside out to see the proper side of everything. With the tapestry needle and black yarn, you want to then attach the eye along the black color portion of the yarn on your work. Make sure it’s centered into the middle of your work, and sew along the black colored yarn of the eye.
Then you want to create the grin of your Minion! It’s 3 simple sewed on sts.
1 stitch across, 1 stitch at a slight angle, and then your last stitch to act as cheek portion of the grin.
step 8 Minion Cell Phone Cover
Clean up any extra yarn with scissors and you’re done! Have fun with your Minion!

    I love the minions! Dave is my favorite one. My sister knits so I might have her try to make me one of these. I have no idea how to knit. Maybe this will inspire me to learn.
