My brother, Ben, turned 16 on March 3rd. (Yay!). Well, of course, I wanted to make him a birthday gift, and I searched for patterns for a long long time. Finally, I found this one. It was perfect! He was obsessed with Despicable Me for a while and still thinks it's pretty cool, so I made him a Minion Hat (Blog Pattern).
I decided to nix the smile that the original pattern had on the hat and leave the goggles un-attached (turns out that was a good decision; he wears the goggles by themselves sometimes!). I've had it done for a few weeks now, but he came to visit me at college this weekend and I was finally able to give it to him! It was a great hit!
