Leonard the Llama is officially for sale!

Oh. Em. Gee. I love llamas. Their little faces are SO FREAKIN’ CUTE. That is the pure and simple reason I made this pattern. Llamas should rule the world, then we’d all be happy all the time and have buck teeth. Also I love the movie The Emperor’s New Groove.

Fabric I used for my version includes Kona curry, Kona Natural, Mama Said Sew sewing instructions, aqua pompoms (squee.) and I used a Pat Bravo Indie print on the back.

Note: after I made my tester llama I reversed the pattern at some point in the process. This means that when your llama is finished he will face right instead of left like mine. Don’t panic, he’s supposed to!
Another Note: If you downloaded your llama pattern before Aug. 16, 2013 please re-download it. I’ve made some very important revisions.

Here’s the pattern.

And here are more awesome homegrown publicity shots.





The only thing that I’m really not satisfied with is his smirk. I really wanted him to SMILE but I just couldn’t do it without a Y seam or lots of tiny pieces. So smirk it is.

Clicky clicky. You know you want it.

    Seriously cute! I like the smirk – especially if it means avoiding y-seams 😉
