After the needle felted owl, I am back to share another needle felting animal, this time it is a felt lion aka needle felted circus lion, Lumba. I did this felt lion more than a month ago but I have to put off sharing the tutorial till now. The reason being that I need to share the lunch box bag and the animal cookies recipe in priority due to popular request. While writing this felt lion tutorial, I am in fact doing other crafts that’s queuing up for sharing soon. Love the amount of back logs I build in the list…. Perhaps I should do Christmas craft now and start sharing them in November.
Back to this felt lion…. Lumba is a shy and kindhearted lion that misses home badly. He is a new member in the circus and he is always nervous about the performance. Whenever he sees a star, he is homesick. He wants to go home where the jungle is and not being locked up in the cage, get trained to be a show lion. He loves his pompadour mane and don’t like it to get messed up during the show.
After making this felt lion, I am so eager to make more felted circus animals and characters with all of them have their own unique personality, perhaps I can come out with a felted circus animal book if some publishers would love to work with me. Hoping and looking forward to this day!!!
Enjoy making this felt lion and enjoy the piercing and poking…. I find that crafting is therapeutic 🙂
