Pair of Red & Gold Wedding Lion Dance Plush Toys

I was honoured to be asked to create a pair of Lion Dance plushies for a friend’s sister’s wedding. I am particularly proud of these toys, not only because I think they turned out really well but because I had only a week to make them both!

Made in lucky red and gold they are approx. 20cm long based on my existing pattern but with extra large heads to make them more “chibi”.
Like the previous lions they have silver faux leather mirrors on their foreheads and red felt “fringe” embroidered on the body and legs.
For these plushies I included extra pom pom details to the nose and head. The feet have been re-enforced with plasticard for balance and stability.

The plush lions were presented to the bride and groom in a very special lion dance performance.


Chinese New Year Little Red Lion Plush

Happy Chinese New Year! Here is a little red Lion Dance plush I was commissioned to make last year that I never shared 🙂

The pattern was based on the previous Lions that I made only smaller. The plush is roughly 20cm long made from high quality fleece with felt details and embroidery.

The commissioner requested that the family name on the belly (not shown).
The name is machine cut from professional quality vinyl (vivid flex heat transfer vinyl) in black on white jersey material.

Other elements of the designs include:
– Silver faux leather Mirror on the forehead
– Pom pom nose details
– Plasticard re-enforced feet for balance and stability
– Black felt “fringe” on the body and legs.

 


Chinese Lion Dance Plushies

I was so excited when I received the custom order request from the Hung Gar Yau Shu Martial Arts School (HGYS) to create 3 Lion Dance plushies for their 30th Anniversary celebration! The request was for 3 Lions based on their clubs colors; red, gold and green.

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 😀
