Hear me ROAR...

 While perusing the crafty blogs after the birth of Harriet I saw THIS lion pillow on Anna Maria Horner's blog and I absolutely HAD to have it.  I needed it.  So what is a crafty mama to do - but shamefully copy.  Imitation is the greatest form of flattery - right? 

It makes me feel better that a I've seen a few other mamas making crocheted lion pillows too!

Here is my version - 

I hadn't crocheted in ages (okay - since college) but found that my fingers remembered what to do.  So I ran out and got some yarn and crocheted away.  I think I like my version a bit better - he looks like a very friendly lion. 

I chain stitched the facial features and sewed them on with a tapestry needle.  It was fun working with some yarn for a change.  I still miss my sewing - but I found that crocheting is an easy project to pick up and put down quickly - a necessity with two little ones around. 

He's gotten some good kisses from Lucy!

I can't resist posting a few one-month photos of our little Harriet!  She's been a wonderful baby!

 This is her signature frown.


  1. I Love it Becky! I want a giraffe. Kidding...love the pics of Hattie and can't wait to come play again sometime soon! Take Care you 4 (!) down there

  2. Just found your blog from your Etsy shop...such cute stuff! Just thought it funny that I have a bunny that I named Harriet in my Etsy shop. Not a common name right now, but one that I LOVE!

  3. How did you make the rows for the mane? I love this lil' pillow! :D
