I picked up an old fashioned teddy bear pattern on Etsy, but the only faux fur I had in my stash was this short pile leopard print. Therefore, I added a tail and made a leopard. He's about 11 inches tall, partially hand-stitched, and has two buttons for his eyes. I stuffed him with wool. His arms and legs are button-jointed and his head is just stitched on. He even stands on his own if you arrange his tail just right.







Thanks for looking!

(here's the pattern.)

Using the leopard print definitely was a good choice! He's very handsome. Smiley

Oh he is adorable!  What a good idea to make the teddy bear into a jaguar instead!  Brilliant!

Super cute!
It reminds me of the marsupilami too. Maybe you could make the marsupilami family as your next project.

Thanks!  Cheesy

I had to google marsupilami. I've never seen that before, it's very cute.

Cute! I never would have guessed it was a teddy bear pattern. He's such an adorable little jaguar. Nicely done.
