My friend Beth loves pandas. I mean everyone loves them, but not as much as Beth. If Panda's loved other panda's as much as Beth loves them (but in a sexy way), then they wouldn't be endangered. Ok maybe not that much but she does call everyone Panda like other people do "sweetie".

Anyway, Beth got me this book for Christmas a couple of years ago so this year I made her the panda from it. It's my first try at amigurumi and I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. While I was making it up I decided to sew the eyes and nose rather than use pieces the suggest. I think it's cuter this way but that's a personal thing. I used french knots for the eyes.

my finished version, complete with bad sewing.
