Guess what? My gorgeous friend Jodie has just released a new pattern. It is another in her "Alphabet Animals" range, and this one is "L is for Lion". Naturally I just HAD to make it!!
Like all of Jodie's patterns, the instructions are very well written, easy to follow and easy to make. The lion is all hand sewn & is made from felt. It didn't take very long to make him except that I underestimated how much felt I would need for the mane and I ran out, so the making of "Lentil" was spread out over a few sewing sessions.
"Lentil"? Yes, I named my lion Lentil. Why did I name him Lentil? Well, let's just say that I had no stuffing pellets so I had to use something else to weight his bottom...can you guess what I used?

|If you haven't already guessed why I named my lion "Lentil", here is a clue. |
The discussion on Instagram came up with a very funny hashtag #WhatsInYourBottom
Would you like to make your very own "L is for Lion"? The following link will take you to Jodie's online shop where you can purchase a digital PDF download of the pattern:
