Despicable Me Inspired Newborn Accessories: CROCHET PATTERN

I have been working on a couple of special sets of newborn photo props this week.  These adorable sets are for a long-lost nursing school friend of mine who is expecting TWINS in December.... HOW EXCITING IS THAT!?  

These little Minion hats & diaper covers are absolutely too cute, and are a straight-forward pattern that I came up with.  The suspense must be killing you, so here it is:
