It’s my mum’s birthday when I get back to the UK and like me she is very creative!! So I decided to make her some bits – this included a panda pin cushion as well as some jewellery.
I have drawn up the template I used to create the pin cushion – the face of the panda could be changes to look like other animals. I am thinking maybe a cat for the next one! You could also decorate the pin cushion with beads and ribbons – I went for a simple red heart on mine but you could definitely go crazy!
Download the AnnaFran-PandaTemplate template.
What you need:
Black and white felt – use other colours if you want to make a different animal
Black Embroidery thread and needle
1) Cut out the pieces of felt required as stated on the template.
2) Glue the eyes and nose onto the head – this will give it time to dry
3) Sew round the long edges of the arms and legs, leaving the small opening to be able to fill with stuffing
