I have an obsession with pandas. It is my nickname and i have so many posters and stuffed animals people may think im alittle nuts. But seeing as halloween is coming up and im using that as an excuse for this costume (even though its so comfy i will most likely wear it all the time, lol) I made a panda costume. Its made of flannel. Its not totally done, i have to finish the hood and a few small things and i hate buttons...
here it is!

If you're nuts then so am I - your love of pandas is much like my love of dogs Cheesy

It's such a cute outfit, I'm tempted to make one with Rottweiler markings for my boyfriend (he needs new chill-out clothes lol). It does look very comfy - also, I love your pink hair Cheesy Did you use a pattern or draft your own? x

I totally love it!!!!  I would wear it in public even if it wasn't Halloween.  I'm envisioning me grocery shopping in a cozy warm panda suit now.   Grin  Yes, I love it, and now I want one!!!!

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

A tutorial would be epic Cheesy especially since you used two different coloured fabrics, and rotties have two different colours in their fur too. Also, I'd need some help with figuring out how to get the ears in the right position.

I forgot to ask, does this costume have the feet on them too? x

Yea the two different fabric thing was a pain in the arse. no, it doesnt have feet but id imagine it wouldnt be too hard to make em. you cant see it in the picture but the rest of the legs are black like a real panda. When i get a chance i'll try and draw up a tutorial for it. Never made a tute before so i hope i can make sense of it.
