Giveaway: Geek Chic Panda Sewing Kit

Geek Chic Panda Sewing Kits
I designed my first sewing pattern! It’s a simple pattern to make your own Geek Chic Panda – a soft toy I designed and sell in my Etsy store. As well as selling the pandas (handmade by me) I’m now selling make it yourself sewing kits. The kits contain the supplies you need to create your own Geek Chic Panda:

  • Instructions & sewing pattern;
  • All the required fabric (cotton), including a piece of fabric with a screen printed panda face;
  • Toy stuffing (100% polyester);
  • A woven English Girl at Home tag.

Geek Chic Panda Sewing Kits
I’ve been planning to make sewing kits for some time, having been asked by a few customers at craft fairs last year. The kits make it nice and easy for sewing beginners to make a toy due to their simple design and the inclusion of supplies, and they’re a super quick make for anyone with sewing experience.

The Geek Chic Panda kits come in two designs – with Glasses, or with a Bow Tie. Want to see what the finished pandas look like? Here they are:)

Geek Chic Panda

Homemade Plush Panda

I really enjoy making toys. I try to make more sensible items, but I always get drawn back because toys are definitely the most fun thing to make & to share.

I had a sudden urge to make pandas so came up with the two designs pictured. A panda sporting glasses and another with a bow tie. They have screen printed faces and were sewn by hand.

They’re available from my Etsy shop.
