No lion tamer can do his or her job without a bag to hold lion treats. After all, you want your lion well-fed, don’t you?
- Non-woven messenger bag
- Tan Craft Felt –1 8 1/2 x 11” piece

Cut 2 ears and a face from the tan craft felt. Glue felt face to the front flap of the messenger bag. Make sure the flap is on the table or a protected surface and that the body of the messenger bag is out from under the flap (flipped up and away from the crafter) so that you don’t glue the flap shut.
Wrap yarn around a 2” piece of cardboard 30 times to create a pom pom. Make 10 and set aside.
Position and glue orange pom poms around the circle.
Add a dab of glue to the bottom inside of each ear and pinch together for a couple of minutes.
Add glue to the bottom back of the ears and press into the orange pom poms, referring to the photo for placement.
And now you are ready to head into the spotlight to tame your lion!
