After being inspired by the Lionheart Project  - three giant crocheted lions created for the Cultural Olympiad, see here for details: http://www.lionheartproject.com - I made a tiny little lion, named Boris by my kids. We went up to London to take him to see the lions, which were on display at the Natural History Museum.







I've done a pattern swap with Louie of Louie's Loops, so the pattern is available there if you want to make yourself a tiny lion of your own: http://www.louiesloops.com/2012/09/as-i-promised-yesterday-check-out.html

Thanks! I was really happy how they came out, though they do make him a bit top heavy. If you make him it might be a good idea to weight his bottom a bit to help him stand more easily.

Such a dear little lion. Wasn't he scared of the big ones?  Grin

Oh no, he's very brave, and besides, they were behind glass! He met the lions in Trafalgar Square too.
