Introducing Paulo the Charming Tiger

Mister Paulo knows how to charm the ladies. His secret? He's actually sincere.

When he says he bought these roses because their loveliness reminded him of you, that's what he did.

When he says that as lovely as they are, they pale next to your beauty, he really means it.

And the ladies know it. Oh Paulo, you charmer.

To be honest, I'm not entirely sure myself.

I looked at my red miniature rose and suddenly the choice was clear - roses. Soon after, the idea of a sweet little tiger holding a bouquet of lovely red roses came to me. How? Why? Who knows. The mental image stuck and I had to try to make Paulo. I'm very pleased that he turned out exactly as I saw him with my mind's eye.

Paulo the Charming Tiger is available as a pattern via Ravelry (or click here to buy now - no Ravelry account needed) and from my Etsy shop.

His roses are also available as a separate tutorial, suitable for beginners.
