Patterns: Sunburst Lion

Lion close up

When I saw Cate Anevski's free Sunburst Lion pattern, over on her blog Bee's Knees Activities (scroll down to June), I just had to stitch it. All that running stitch creates a wonderful visual and textural effect. This pattern reminds me of retro children's illustrations and could be used in so many ways. I used my finished piece to make an oversized tote (just perfect for carting large packets of nappies from the shops) and it is now my new favourite bag.
