August has been super busy for me! :D I’ve been gearing up for my favorite holiday, Halloween ^w^ so you should see some updates in my Etsy store now and in the coming weeks. I’m also working on some projects for myself, friends, and family, so I’ll be sharing those with you in the future too! Also super exciting – I’ve surpassed 2,000 subscribers on this blog! So thank you to all my wonderful fans out there ;0; I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you! Stay tuned next week — I’ll be holding a giveaway to celebrate this new milestone! ♥
This little project is simple but sweet :D The pun is based off the fact that the ‘pan’ in panda means bread in lots of different languages like Spanish, Japanese, and more loosely Italian and French. I was inspired a lot by the Sanrio character, Pankunchi :3 A little panda that hates bamboo but loves eating bread. So together we have a big plush breadloaf with panda features!
Assembling the loaf is pretty simple ^-^ There are some curved seams to worry about in sewing up the front and back, but overall it’s a basic shape :D
