This awesome lion cuddly toy softie pattern is an Etsy bestseller. The same pattern allows you to make both male and female lions so you can sew your own pride of lions. Don’t they look good in one fabric or in a patchwork. Toys like this one are always great scrap busters because you can make a fabulous patchwork toy using up all the smallest pieces of fabric you have left over.
The Lion Toy sewing pattern will make you a wonderful Larry Lion plush toy which will have a finished size of 13” (33cm). The perfect size to cuddle or to display in the bedroom or nursery, no matter what your age.
This cute little lion is part of the designer’s Friends Factory “Out of Africa” range. As the designer says “He’s not a very scary lion, more of a cuddly fellow, but I think he’d be brave enough to scare away the monsters under the bed at night”.
It is recommended that you use fleece, of any type, and other stretch fabrics eg. velour, chenille and flannelette. Larry can be made from non-stretch fabrics like quilting cottons but he may just get a few puckers around his snout.
This toy is made from a Funky Friends Factory Pattern.
