Bruce & Norm, the Despicable Minions


My daughter loves minions. In fact, it was one of her first non-essential words. I’m not sure if it’s just because they are so doggone cute or if she has secret plans for world domination. Either way, she has two of them now – Bruce and Norm.

This pattern includes instructions for both minions and you can easily mix up the eyes, mouths, and hair to suit your own diabolical needs. There are written instructions as well as charts and picture tutorials.

All proceeds from The Slow Huggers and Bruce & Norm, the Despicable Minions from October 2014 – December 2015 were donated to the Pediatric Cancer Care and Research Fund at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, OR. My niece underwent chemo there for Medulloblastoma and the things they do for these insanely brave kids is amazing!

While they cannot accept knitted toys (for infection control reasons) they can use the funds to provide new books, crafts, and toys for the 140,000 annual visits from kids with life-threatening illnesses. Check out their Wish List for other ways to help.
