DHP April 9, 2012- Peter Panda (by LD Originals)


Today I decided I’d post the project pix from last nights craft project, I made him for a friend’s birthday from cotton socks that had black heels & toes, the socks were too small and when I got them i thought ‘hey, it looks like a panda’ and I just went from there.

using a pattern from the book ‘Socks Appeal’ (i used the Hamster pattern as a visual guide as it was closest to the shape I was aiming for, page 78 & featured on the cover), I turned these socks-

the socks I started with, after I cut them into the pieces i needed

Into a cheeky panda :). Enjoy!  PS- I HIGHLY recommend the book ‘socks appeal’, some clever ideas for happy crafts!
