Perfect. The most wonderful little purple dragon ever. Baby isn't here yet but I know this little guy will be so loved over the years. The details and stitching are impeccable. Meg communicated with me immediately that she would be just a tad bit slow in sending my magic dragon and, even though I was not in a hurry at all, added a sweet treat that was beyond my expectations. Oh yes, I will want more of these crocheted critters and I will definitely look no further than Meg's Minions. There could be none better.

About

Everyone Needs a Sidekick!

In 2010, I had the great fortune of managing an exhibition at a natural history museum that features crochet. Since then... I've been hooked! (Puns are free with all Meg's Minions services)

A friend of mine was expecting her first child. Bored with making scarves and coasters, I decided to make her little one a stuffed animal. As usual, I wasn't happy with the patterns out there and wanted to make something unique to my aesthetic, so I took on the daunting task of creating one on my own... a handsome pig complete with a belly button.

Seeing that this crafty fad was sticking around, I decided to make a small business. I'm always looking for new ways to crochet and then incorporate them into one-of-a-kind patterns so that I can offer the finished product or pattern to others.

A shop like this doesn't stand alone. It is a bit of a community effort. I design things I believe others will like, but always get input from friends and customers of how to make their shopping experience better. If you see something that you'd like to share, please do!

    Meg works in a natural history museum and is normally surrounded by millions of artifacts and specimens... which fuels her inspiration to create new and unique plush toys.

    Mrow! I believe, in my own little way, that I am extremely helpful when I sit on Meg's lap and watch her work or knock something off the table which I feel needs to be tested.

  • Loki

    Factory Manager

    My business philosophy... there ain't nothin' you can't do wit'out a cat in your lap. I inspect the yarn and make sure the acrylic stuffing is warm. One day, I'll get promoted to Supervisor.
