Coming down with a nasty flu during process resulted in “false start” with a not quite right pattern and one superfluous lion. But once I recovered I was able to modify the pattern and finish the plushies. I’m so proud of them!
The Lions are roughly 28cm long (nose to tail). They are made from soft fleece with embroidered eyes and face details and felt “fringe”. The mirror on the forehead is made from silver faux leather. All of my toys are machine embroidered freehand.
The mouth is re-enforced so it does not bulge with the stuffing inside and there are hand stiched pom pom nose details. The soles of the feet are stiffened with plasticard to help them stand.
The Lion plushies were part of the raffle and I was told they were very popular on the night 😀
