Well, I was fourteen when I first saw it. 'Course, that was in the theater... first day, I think... xp
That's totally adorable, though! Is that from a pattern...? (somewhat ulterior motive behind that question: my mom's got a thing for stuffed lions -- she's a Leo -- and I'm not sure yet what I'm going to make for her...)
No pattern. I actually can't read a crochet pattern too well. I make up all of my crochet stuff. All it is is a rectangle tapering in at one end to form a nose, sewed together, and then embroidered and the mane stitched on. The mane is just knotting strings around.
