Lion Heart EPP

I recently did a bit of pattern testing for Laurel at Porcupine Stew Threads. Laurel designs EPP patches, which are just a bit more challenging than your average EPP pattern! I'd been looking at her patterns for a while, but postage from the States made it very expensive, so when she announced she was looking for pattern testers for her new PDF patterns I volunteered straight away! And this is the result:


Isn't he lovely? I used some Ruby Star Society, Lizzy House and Giucy Giuce for the tans in his mane, then a Moda spot and a random cream for the lighter sections. He's appliqued to a Libs Elliot background.

The design is fantastic and I love the result, but this isn't a pattern for the beginner. I adored making it because it was more challenging than a regular EPP design, and I would definitely make more of Laurel's pattern for exactly that reason. The biggest struggle I had was making those fine EPP points crisp and accurate - there may have been a small amount of fudging.

This finished lion was wrapped round an A4 pre-stretched canvas purchased from The Work for just a few pounds, using my brand new staple gun - bought especially for this project - the power! It's going to hang in Joshua's room.
