This is Kingston, originally Roxycraft's Winston the Lion...only Joann fabrics didn't have the same type of yarn for his mane and I had to improvise using Lion Brand suede.  The body in all took about a week for me crochet and assemble.  His hair on the other hand is all individual crochet loops and took me about 8 hours in one sitting.  Thank goodness there was a TV marathon going on.

Anyhow, our 5 year old brings him nearly everywhere and holds him dearly.  I was originally going to make his scarf in Rastafarian colors to go along with his name.  Thanks for the pattern, Roxycraft...now our boy has a true handmade keepsake Smiley

Thanks for the compliments!  He's had him for about 2 months now and we've washed him once in a pillow case.  That was a hard thing to get him to let go of Kingston.  Yes, he's become a Rupert (stewie's from Family Guy) for our boy.  Grin
