Green Lion Bookmark (free pattern + give away)

Hello!

Yesterday I got inspired by a lovely cat bookmark. Therefore I wanted to try to make one by myself. I also thought that it would be a great give away for someone! So, I sat down and started to make one. I didn’t want to copy it and make the same cat. As a result I made a green lion. I wrote down a pattern as well, as I didn’t want to forget how I made it and keep it for future animal bookmarks.
