Oh no!! That link is BAD news for my budget. But thank you!! ;) And your tutorial is perfectly clear--love it!


Love the panda (and the idea about making a friend and not doing any housework), but the body is so not felt. What is it, some kind of wool fabric? I know it's what you use all the time, but it's time to spill the beans! (Please!!)


Your toys have the sweetest expressions, and I love the toys' toy. Thanks, as always for the terrific links!


lovely tutorial, thanks!


Wonderful - love the little friend. That Uncle Bob gets around, doesn't he...

And I'm sorry, you can't have Simon. Not even on eBay.


Love it! This is so great. I have a girlfriend who is all crazy about pandas and this will be the perfect holiday gift.


Thank you so much for the instructions. I have been wanting to make a softie for a long time and now with your directions there should be nothing else stopping me.

All I can say is:


Lyn, you're amazing.



Good girl, clever girl. What a wonderful find. I had to violate my fabric buying hiaitus. Yay!!

Excellent panda, excellent tutorial. You have so much talent!!!


Oh good lord Lyn what have you done??! I can feel my credit card creaking already, what a fabulous link, you can't imagine how many hours I've wasted looking for such a thing, you star! can not, will not go to sleep, oh dear...


So cute! So easy! I wish I didn't have so much to do today, I want to go make one *right* *now*!

(thanks for the tutorial)


Thanks for the tutorial... Do you handstitch all of your toys? My machine makes a blanket stitch, but to tell the truth it makes me too nervous to use it. :P This panda is so cute!


Thanks so much for the tutorial and for the fabric site!


I just love you tutorials, the panda is precious. Its been a Japanese inspiration day for me at the bookstore, how fitting I come home and continue the fun with your link. Someone stop me before I drain our bank account! : )
