About MegsMinions

On Etsy since 2011

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 Rivers

    Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator

    Mother of Squids. Meg is constantly inspired by her work in a natural history museum... all the weird but true specimens from 4 billion years to today. You'll often find her with hook in one hand and wine wine in the other at a nearby winery.

  • Inigo

    Quality Control Inspector

    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. My proficiency is catnip toys. One day, I'll get promoted to Supervisor.

Welcome! Thanks for stopping by Meg's Minions. I hope you "squee" with delight as you cruise around the shop. Let me know if you like the style and want something a little custom made. Some variations can be made to the animals depending on yarn available.

Shipping
DURING COVID PANDEMIC
Please be patient as your sidekick needs a little more time during shipping. Packages are sent via USPS and they are currently understaffed and underbudgeted at this critical time. Allow a little bit longer for your sidekick to find you. Feel free to ask us for a tracking number if you can not find it in your transaction in Etsy.

Also, keep in mind that travel bans may impact speed of delivery.
