Evil Minions January 9, 2008

 Hostile Bunni has been pretty quiet lately, so i decided to see what he’s been up to.  Remember that ‘duplicating’ machine in the movie Santa Clause 2?  Well, looks like bunni had the same idea.


Not only did he make larger, more ‘evil’ copies of himself, but i caught them in a top secret ‘evil’ meeting:

021-1.jpg It’s red cause it’s evil.

The arrival of the new kitties fueled his desire for a hostile takeover~ bunni style.

041-1.jpg “Take your positions”

033-1.jpg “you will follow our every command, kittens”

035-1.jpg “There is no escaping us.  We have you surrounded.”

034-2.jpg “crap”

Looks like bunni didn’t think this one through.  Again!  Here is the chaos that ensued:

040.jpg “Bunni down, Bunni down!!!”


036.jpg“ABORT MISSION!!!!”

039-1.jpg “Save yourselves, minions!”

Phew, looks like the kittens got lucky this time!! 

Here is how to make your own evil bunni minions:

(pdf version: evil-minions)


size G hook

ww yarn (i mainly used Vanna’s Choice, also some random scraps)

felt, yarn needle, embroidery floss


6 sc in a ring

rd1: 2sc in each sc around (12 sc)

rd2: 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc around (18 sc)

rd3: 2sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc around (24 sc)

rd4: 2sc in first sc, sc in next 3 sc around (30 sc)

rd5-16: sc in each sc around (30 sc)

rd17: in BLO, sc2tog, sc in next 3 sc around (24 sc)

rd18: sc2tog, sc in next 2 sc around (18 sc)

rd19: sc2tog, sc in next sc around (12 sc)

At this point, i finished off and sewed the body shut.  After stuffing it, of course!

Ears (make 2)

6 sc in a ring

rd1: 2sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc around (8 sc)

rd2-7: sc in each sc around (8 sc)

fasten off, leave long tail for sewing


1.  I made the ears first, then sewed them on the head before i got to the first decrease round.

2.  For the faces,  i cut out circle and almond type shapes for the eyes, and rounded triangles for the noses.  I used black embroidery floss (3 strands) to sew it onto the head,  also, when i was done sewing on the nose, i put the needle through the spot right under the nose, went back in just a little bit down and then embroidered a kinda wide upside down ‘V’ for the mouth. 

3.  i did a color change in the third to last even sc round. 

Enjoy your evil minions!

  20. […] Besonders niedliche finde ich allerdings den Mogry aus Final Fantasy und auch diese genialen kleinen bösen (?) Hasen und dieses herzige Viech. Aber vielleicht ist der schlaue Fuchs ja eher etwas für Euch. […]

  21. Jeanine Says:

  22. Amy Says:
