A friend posted a picture of a minion in her Instagram feed, wondering if anyone had seen a pattern for one. She commented that she thought it would be great to have a minion in her sewing room with her.
I thought that if one were going to have a minion in one’s sewing room, the minion should do something. Like hold pins.
And I was thus inspired to make her a minion pin cushion: A PINION!
I used felt for the body and the hands and raw edge appliqué to add the overalls, goggles, and eyes.
I used a tight zig zag stitch on my sewing machine to add details: the goggle strap, the shoulder straps of the overalls, and the middle of the eyes.
Now I think *I* need a PINION to help out in my sewing room!
