Plushie: Leo the Lion by Avanii Plushie: Leo the Lion by Avanii
A male lion, made for my youngest brother Nils, who turned 10 this summer. Both his zodiac sign and his favourite animal is the lion, so it was not hard to decide what animal to make him, haha :) I used the same pattern as for the lion cub Lerato but adapted it to make an adult lion. The white fur on his face and paws is of a shorter pile, and made the turning of the paws slightly easier to do (but I will not make them this small again, it's too much of a pain D: ). I like the way he turned out, even though his body is more "chibi" than I would have liked, ah well. Nils loved it I believe, and that's what matters :) His mane is very soft and fun to mess with. I shaded his face a bit with Copic markers, and the tail is poseable as usual. I'm not entirely sure how big he is, but I believe around 6 inches head to butt.

Materials: faux fur (6 mm, 13 mm and 30 mm), glass eyes, Copic markers, embroidery thread, fibrefill and plastic pellets.

Photos etc. to me, Avanii

I always love the sheer cuteness of your plushies :D Plus, you're one of the few of many who don't base their creations heavily off others. If I were more into lions I would love to own one of these.

Thank you so much! I love to experiment and only look at store-bought plushies if I want to solve a specific problem I can't solve on my own. I make the plushies I would have wanted to own when I was a child :D
