I have a weakness for Japanese craft books. A serious weakness. The projects, photos and styling are all fabulous so even if I can’t read them, I can spend hours pouring through them. Over the holidays Rozii and I were looking at a couple of them in particular and she asked if I could make up one of the pandas.
The instructions in most of these craft books are abundantly clear, but what I soon found out was that on a project that has several similarly sized circles it became a bit hit and miss. I only messed up once; cutting out and sewing the wrong color and size to the bottom of the panda’s feet. Once I figured that out, it was pretty smooth going. Oh, and I also think I now know the character for “black” which helped me to sort out the pieces.
He’s pretty darn cute. The koala might be next.
