DIY Despicable Me Minion Phone Cozy

Have you seen Despicable Me 2 yet? We went to see it when it came out, it's super cute! My favorite part of the Despicable Me movies are the minions. I love those little guys. I wanted to make a fun minion project and this is what I decided on. My phone is now a minion. Yours could be too! :)

Supplies: Yellow, White, Black, and Blue Felt, Sewing Machine, Black Thread, Scissors

1. Measure your phone to determine what size yellow rectangles to cut out. Add about 1/2" to each side for seam allowances. Cut out 2 yellow rectangles from felt that size.

2. Using a picture of a minion as a guide, cut out his features from the other colors of felt- grey and black goggles, white eye, blue overalls. They're really simple shapes, just circles and rectangles.

3. Using your sewing machine (or by hand! I just don't have the patience.) stitch down the felt features. I started with the eye, than added goggles. After the I did the mouth and overalls.

4. Stitch a 1/4" hem on the top edge of both yellow pieces.

5. Place them rights sides together, pin and stitch down the 2 sides and the bottom using a 1/4" seam. Leave the top open!

6. Flip right side out through the top!  Now your phone can be despicably awesome.

You could even make this one of the evil purple minions! That would be funny. :)
