Troublet was talking about making a panta the other day and I was sure she was going to stitch a panda in a Santa suit. Little did I know, a panta is actually a knit or crochet headband. Duh.

Even after learning the real meaning of a "panta", I couldn't let go of my alternative meaning so I decided to stitch him up.

He is very busy this time of year preparing christmas toys for all of the baby pandas of the world.





Thank you to Troublet for inspiring the Panta and coming up with the bamboo candy cane idea!

Happy holidays! Catch the Panta spirit!

I really fun idea for Christmas.    The "Santa Panda" could have so many interpretations. I love yours, especially the bamboo candy canes.

Thank you! Not a silly question, at all! I use alphabet stamps with a permanent ink pad. I always stamp before I stitch in case I mess up Smiley.
