Melly & Me - Leon Pattern

It was pure fun meeting Rosalie and Melanie of Melly & me at Houston's Quilt Market, and it was almost as fun getting introduced to the wonderful cast of cute characters in their pattern line! Their patterns look fantastic with whimsical and cute Japanese fabrics, so the fit is perfect. To make this gentle lion you'll need:


  • 20" yellow fabric (body)
  • 12" x 24" orange fabric (mane)
  • 12" teal fabric (pants)
  • scraps of black and white wool felt
  • scrap of plain red fabric
  • 8" x 12" red polka dot fabric (tummy, paws, & ears)
  • fill for stuffing
  • 6 strand embroidery floss in red, black & white
  • 6 medium-sized red buttons
  • 18" of ½" elastic
  • 12" of lightweight, fusible interfacing
  • 12" of lightweight, fusible batting
