    A fearsome, friendly soft toy lion. Charlie's pattern has 11 pages of easy to follow instructions with photos and diagrams to help as you stitch. He is a fully jointed lion with the option of hand shading his features (tutorial on this is included - very worthwhile).

    Charlie can be made in any short pile fabric, but if you want to shade his face, I recommend a smooth fabric at least for his head for best effect. My lions pictured are wearing a faux suede but plush, velvet, even a mini cord would suit.

    This lion is suitable for older children and collectors. Due to the parts used he is only suitable to befriend younger children as a keepsake, out of reach.

    Previous soft toy making would help but full instructions are given for every stage and I'm always happy to help too if you hit a sticky patch.
