In the jungle is Lionel

Move over Simba because Lionel is the now the cutest lion in the jungle!

My friend is expecting his first baby this August. I wanted to crochet a doll as a gift and he suggested a jungle animal b/c they’re going w/ a jungle theme. The baby is to be born in August…a Leo, so I looked around for a pattern but didn’t find anything nice. I decided it was time to create my own. That’s how my Lionel concept was conceived!

Lionel’s best feature is his mane. I used my hook and crocheted a the wavy technique right into the head. Now if only I can figure out how to document the pattern….

    Hi! I stumbled on your post through the tag surfer and I think that Lionel is just the cutest. What a great idea to make for an August baby. My friend is due in August, too and something like this would be great for her little girl. I wish I was that creative!
