Wufoo Panda

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

I'm finally back to sewing, and thought I'd share something with you.
This is a dress for my niece who adores Kung Fu Panda (but pronounces it wufoo panda). She's 2 years old...(that's the dress size).

The dress pattern is from this site: ikatbag
I absolutely LOVE her blog, and just floored at how talented and creative she is. She's also nice enough to share a lot of her patterns and ideas.

Front of the dress.

Back of the dress. "Love"

Here is the pattern for the pandas. I cut them out in felt and just stitched them on. Simple enough, and I really dig the mix of felt with paint (bamboo)... I'll probably end up doing more using this idea.

Here is the pattern for the bamboo. Check this link for a tutorial: Stenciling
It's worth learning how to do it, I've done stenciling SO many times! I'll share other work I've done in future posts.
Happy sewing! If anyone tries this out, or even just makes the dress .. please share with ME! I love seeing what others are doing.

That is so beautiful! I love the bamboo and the "ai" at the back of the dress. Thank you for inviting me to come see what you've done with the pattern. I'm glad you used it, and made this beautiful dress with it!

LiEr, I LOVE the pattern (and your site)...I just finished trying the 'boys overalls' out...will post soon.

Ummu Noora... haha, I'm try to work on the 'pro' look... :> *don't tell anyone I don't really know what I'm doing*

Mona.. she's very happy with it, alhumduliLlah.

Masha'Allah, ukhti! So cute! I need to sew again. I did it professionally for years and burned out from it. But your blog is inspiring me to dust off my sewing table!
