My first lion
Several weeks ago, one of the attorneys found out that I made stuffed animals. She has a baby boy named Leo, who is about to have his first birthday in a few weeks. She asked if I made lions.
Of course I do, I said, and promptly came home and dug through my sweater stash until I found one that looked appropriately lion-like. Obviously multi-stripes in tan, ivory, yellow, rust, blue and purple are lion colors, yes? I thought so. I made his mane from two larger circles of rust colored t-shirt knit, cut and stretched so that it curled.
I took it into the office today and handed it over, and her eyes just lit up. If little Leo likes it half as much as his mom, I'll feel good.
