  • Cut out panda softie templates. Pin each template to the felt and cut out the necessary pieces.
  • Pin black eye sections and feet onto the front of one of the squares of felt.
    Thread a needle with a long piece of thread. If using embroidery floss, seperate the strand of floss into two sections (each section will have 3 strings of floss). Use one section for sewing.
    Tie a knot on the end. Stitch around the eye sections and feet. Tie a knot on the back when you are finished and cut the thread for each area that you sew.

You can sew your entire project or glue your entire project. We used a combination of sewing and gluing. Hot glue works best when gluing felt, but fabric glue is safer for kids (prevents burns). If using fabric glue, allow some time for the pieces to dry.
