Jun 29, 2021 | Blog, Toy-making TIPS & TUTORIALS

Yeehar! Finally I have had the chance to update the Panda Pattern and it has a FULL step-by-step photo tutorial! 



This baby Panda soft toy pattern has been based on the custom design that I did for the Green Revolt panda logo. You may remember the story behind the design which was based on the pandas that were orphaned by the Sichuan earthquake. I have chosen Ning as the name for this sweet little panda as it means Tranquil/Peaceful. Hopefully they are living peacefully in their new refuge.

Is there a Panda Pattern tutorial?

YES! I have created a step-by-step photo tutorial to show you EXACTLY how to sew these cute Panda toys – with lots of clever keepsake making tips and tricks! 

As usual, you can access the tutorial using the link in the See-Me-Sew section of the pattern.
