My daughter is in her panda phase, so when I asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween this year I could already predict what her answer was going to be.  I made this vest using the "Warm Hoodie Vest Pattern" from Dear My Kids Easy Wear on Etsy.  The pattern was very easy to follow.  All I had to do to change it into a panda was fashion a couple of ears out of black fleece and fiberfill, applique the eyes and nose, and add a few buttons.  The pattern includes a cute gathered pocket pattern, but I struggled with doing it in fleece, so I created the heart shaped pocket instead, I thought it kind of tied in with the nose.  The white and black fabrics are polar fleece and it is lined with a punky pink flannel that I found at Joann, super toasty!

Flashing that snazzy flannel lining.

Thanks for looking!

She can't wait until her school's fall festival so she can wear it.  I have a feeling we'll be seeing the panda vest all winter long.

Thanks for the kind feedback.  Our aim was cute, so I'm glad we succeeded!   
I wish I were better at enlarging patterns so I could make one and be a mama panda.
