I'm making a few things for Natalie's upcoming birthday. I can't believe she'll be 6, for her it's not soon enough - all her friends are 6 already according to her.
We're madly in love with pandas, so I've been searching high and low for panda things. Luckily I had this little idea tucked in the back of my brain for a little while. I used the Square Bear pattern from the book Sew Darn Cute by Jenny Ryan as a starting point. I used black flannel for the panda eyes, ears, legs and arms. Put in a little pocket for top secret stuff (maybe even a lost tooth someday) and there you have it.
