Henry Hippo and Leo Lion

And then there were four!

Meet the gang. Elliot Elephant, Henry Hippo, Leo Lion and Ronnie Rhino.

They are an amicable bunch and like nothing more than hanging about on the sofa before they go off to their new home.

Henry was another simple make. Those ears and nostrils just finish him off.

img_2995Leo was a little different. He has a rather effective looking mane.
Very simple, but very effective, it’s added after the head is complete. 10 chains and a slip stitch worked into every other stitch, every other row.

So I’m off to conquer the orangutan……. or maybe the monkey first;)

But not before I pick up the new addition to my family.


She’s a beauty!

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  1. Adorable! Love your use of different colours. Are you planning on completing the whole menagerie?
    Have fun with the new member of the family – I’m not a regular cyclist myself but she looks ‘the business’.

  9. I do love your animals – beautifully made. My husband has a new bike too (mountain). He keeps bringing it in the kitchen and swooning over it……I’d probably be the same if I had a new one!
