Kung Fu Panda 2 was soo awesome that I sat through the whole movie with my mouth wide open. At the end while the credits rolled Mr.Venus turns to me and asks, "So are you going to make a little Po or his little panda stuffie?"

Here's my response: (Other than telling him "Hell Yeah!") Cool

He is about 7 inches tall, and I still need to put a few details into him. Nose will be different, and his mouth, along with some other things like shorts Cheesy and paw pads. But I was thinking of creating a puffed out snout like a panda would have. Any ideas?
I decided to give him to my nephew. He can wait to have him until he is older but he has a baby(mouth) friendly panda already, and he loves it. So I know he'd love this one too.

His pattern is drafted by me just based on looking at pictures of baby Po and an actual panda. Completely hand sewn and only took about 8 hours from beginning to end. I have to make more, just gotta tweak the pattern a bit.

Comments & critique always welcome. Thanks for looking. Smiley

No critiques from me I'm afraid - just a verdict of VERY cute!

Bringing sexy back for a refund. It really just wasn't "me".

I couldn't find any pictures of it either. I figured it was too soon? Might try and do another search, but if you look at amazon you can find a plush of Baby Po. I'll link here if I can find it. Smiley

Thanks for the nice comments. I need more stuffies to make for practice makes perfect. Or in my case makes for faster and more stuffies.

I really love his big eyes and cute little button nose  Cheesy

Here ya go abuchshort, Look here is Baby Po. http://www.dreamworksanimationfineart.com/servlet/the-217/dreamworks,-animation,-fine-art,/Detail
Here's an actual plushie from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001C07C2G/ref=asc_df_B001C07C2G1578193?smid=A3E4WDGCO8GZPB&tag=dealtimemp2-106-20&linkCode=asn&creative=395105&creativeASIN=B001C07C2G
I googled Po's panda stuffie but still can't find a proper screenshot or image. His plushie shows up when ever they do a "flash back" or they show Baby Po. It looked to be hand stitched out of black and white burlap or linen, but I wanted this to be softer and opted for the felt I always have on hand.
If you do go see the movie just pay close attention to those parts of the movie.

I'm still waiting on some large safety eyes but I love the look of buttons and I have a small obsession with buying them. It's probably best I use them.  Cheesy
