Is in fact a Panda Bear! Ain't he gorgeous???
|I decided that the white spot pattern on the ears was a bit bright, so used a black permanent stamp pad to tone down the brightness, and also give the ears a bit of dimension.|
Poor old Pandy here was my first birthday present... the story goes that Dad held me out and ran me along the shelves of toys... this was the one that I grabbed and wouldn't let go. Complete with key in the back, he still plays Mary Had a Little Lamb when wound up. Not bad for almost 41 years later!
If you are also tempted to sew up a Panda block, Juliet has the pattern available for free for a limited time.
