So, I really hate hate having scraps of fabric I throw away and waste, and I also have come into a very large amount of vintage buttons that I'm in love with.  I also have been experimenting with making my own 3d plush animal patterns with instruction from whileshenaps.typepad.com/.  EXCELLENT site and has expanded my knowledge of pattern making SO much!  Any way, I decided to start off my animal collection with a lion using those scraps and vintage buttons!











It was important to me that since he had movable legs, he should stand, too.  So I stuffed him really well, made sure his joints were good and tight and it worked!  I'm really pleased with how he turned out.  Thinking about a giraffe to match.

Oh, for cute! I would love to see a matching giraffe! Did you sew tubes to make the mane?

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

He's wonderful! I think you should make a giraffe and a zebra and a hippo and an elephant and tons of animals. The style is terrific!

Yep! For the mane I got out my scrap box and cut about 1" x 1/3" strips and just made tubes out of them and hand sewed them on.  Took about an hour but it was well worth it in the end, I think!

How cute! It's like a lion version of Eeyore.  Love the style, and that mane is absolutely genius!
