Our little family business started out almost 12 years ago in 2001. I'm Yvette, the youngest of three girls, and the voice behind our Facebook fan page. My mother, Sandy Wilson, is the boss and an amazing seamstress who has been sewing most of her life and has great talent. She purchased her first embroidery machine so she could make personalized gifts for her grandchildren and baby gifts for people at her work who started requests for homemade gifts. She started out making everything for free, but the demand soon became too great and she could no longer afford to do that. Not only does she sew on a regular basis to keep up with the constant flow of orders, but also works a full time job as a registered nurse. As U Wish, our business, was born.
You may ask how we came up with our business name. My father, Gary, suggested to call the business "As U Wish" because of my strong passion for the movie, The Princess Bride. I later added on our motto, "U Wish It, We Make It!" He operates our website at www.asuwishcrafts.com, creates some of our embroidery applique designs, and keeps us up to date with technology.
I was added to the business sometime after the birth of m first of three daughters about eight years ago. I started getting requests for the hair bows I made for my daughters. Not only do I enjoy creating things out of ribbon and clay, but also have a strong passion for crochet. My mom taught me at a very young age, and I am forever grateful. I find crochet fun, peaceful and rewarding. I feel lost without my hook. We welcome new ideas, challenges and suggestions.
We do a large variety of crafts, such as: crochet, embroidery, hand made purses, diaper bags, christmas stockings, halloween bags, totes, lap top cases, reader and ipad cases, hair bows, headbands, and we have just started adding lots of clay work, like clay covered hooks and stands, stitch markers, jewelry. We are not at all limited to doing only the things I listed. "U Wish IT, We Make It!" Just send us a message or email with any idea you have and we will create it for you.

This pattern was inspired by the minions from the movie "Despicable Me". I love these little guys, and I know you will enjoy making them come to life by making my hat. I have tried to create the pattern to look as much like the characters from the movie as possible. The tassels on the ear flap are his arms and he has gloves at the base. The goggles are three dimensional and sure to be recognized anywhere. I have also included BONUS instructions for a bow so you can make a girl minion as well.
Now included in the pattern are instructions for more realistic looking eyes.
The 3-D Minion Ear Flap Hat pattern has been throughly tested to ensure you the best, easiest to follow steps with photo tutorials included. If, however, you do have any trouble following this pattern, please do not hesitate to contact me for help.
Please feel free to sell finished hats using my pattern, but you DO NOT have permission to resell, reproduce, or copy my pattern in any way.
