What you get+-
Leon Lion loves to bake! He made an extra fancy cake for this party with lots of pretty swirls. He's the king of the jungle, so he wears a crown instead of a party hat like the other Party Animals.
He'd make a great birthday gift for a friend - or a cute decoration to use at every party celebration in your family.

8 inches tall
This one's a skill builder because the Turkey work stitch I used for that shaggy mane is likely to be new to most beginners. Don't worry - it's not hard! Just a little time consuming. The pattern includes a link to a video showing how to do it. Leon the lion softie pattern is really perfect for portable work – or handwork while you watch TV.
What You Need+-
You'll need. . .

- 2 4.5mm safety eyes
- 1 pipecleaner
- 3 1/4" black buttons
- 1 bugle bead and 1 yellow seed bead
