Mfalme is Swahili for "king", a fitting name for this little 3D cross stitched king of beasts. His coat is fully cross stitched and his mane and tail tip are also made of embroidery floss applied with a turkey work stitch. His mate, Malkia is also available in my shop. He is prepared to stalk his way into your home and heart, and to show off your stitching skills.
Most lion dolls are in one way or another inaccurate. I have tried to solve that problem with this little "big cat". His markings and eyes are what you will see on an actual lion. And what feline would be complete without paw pads? Plus if desired, you can make his tail poseable. Who says that cross stitch is only good for flat things? Now you can stitch a doll using cross stitch for the details.
3D cross stitch isn't as difficult as you may think. It is stitched flat, like a normal piece but as a bunch of small pieces. This animal is stitched as 19 pieces which are then cut out and hand sewn together. Full assembly directions with illustrations are included.
The pattern was hand designed by a professional artist/crafts person. Finished size is approximately 8" tall x 11" long from nose tip to back of tail when worked on 14 count fabric. He is composed of 13 colors.
