How to make our Memory Bear Lion

Here is our step by step guide on how we handmade a Memory Bear Lion for little Olivia.

Step 1 - We received the bundle of beautiful clothing items from Olivia's mummy, now we have the exciting task of deciding which piece of clothing will appear in which place on the Memory Lion.  We knew just instantly that that little pink mouse is going to sit just perfectly on the Lions back!

Step 2 - All the pieces are cut out and lined.
