Hi there!!!! Another adorable amigurumi animal crochet pattern from AmiguruMEI, one of the designers and contributors of amigurumi patterns in Craft Passion. This time she designed an Amigurumi Panda named Pan-San based on a request from a reader. This crochet Panda stuffed animal came in just a little late to celebrate Panda Day on 16th March, but, it is never too late to crochet it any time of the year to own this adorable panda amigurumi doll as a unique collection or as a handmade gift to your loved ones.

[Update: Please don’t shy away from thinking that fuzzy yarn is hard to crochet, I have developed a video on crocheting an Amigurumi Sheep, you may find it here. It is not as difficult as you have thought.]

Pan-San the Panda amigurumi has a serious sweet tooth on bread, cookies, candy, and cupcakes. Besides all the sweet and scrumptious snacks, his favorite drink is a cup of hot green tea which is good to wind him down after all the high sugar content diet.

In addition to the frequent trip to the grocery shop to stock up Pan-San’s food cabinet, due to Pan-San’s fuzzy fur, his mum is busy helping up in the grooming to keep him tidy and good looking after his cat-naps throughout the day. What a handful boy to take care of, he sure is a lucky one to receive all the loves and attention from his mum!

If you have seen the Amigurumi stuffed animals designed by Amigurumei, I am sure you will agree with me that they are created with passion. Not only that, these crochet stuffed animals are pack with characteristics and personalities.

Her Craft Passion’s amigurumi design started with a sleepy look Purple Owl “Mr. Murasaki”, followed by the snowflaky white Polar Bear “Bubblegum” in 2013. Then, a heart-warming “I ruff U” Puppy “Tammy” and lovely pink Easter Bunny “Ichigo-chan” joined our amigurumi team in the first quarter of the following year.

Later, rosy-chicks ballerina Piggy “Princess P” and apple-lover baby Hedgehog “Mimi-chan” came in and blossomed the crochet animal collection.

Last year was the year of Monkey, so Amigurumei created a mischievous baby Monkey, “Daikichi”, for Craft Passion. Daikichi is so cute with a red bow tie to wish us a Happy New Year, and yes, we did have an excellent 2016.

This year, the busy Hen & Chicks “Tori & Twins Tama-Go”  and this sweet tooth Panda “Pan-San” join us as a family. I love the way she gives the character to all her amigurumi designs. **BIG APPLAUSE**

Pan-san, or Mr. Pan, like his name, loves bread. He also loves cookies and candy and cupcakes —basically anything sweet and remotely scrumptious. Aside from snacking, Pan-san loves taking cat-naps throughout the day. He usually winds down with a cup of green tea, which works just as well to bring him zen when he is stressed over things like: "When will mom restock the empty kitchen cabinet with more yummy goodies?"

MORE DETAILS ON HOW TO CROCHET & ASSEMBLE AMIGURUMI PANDA

  1. When working with fuzzy yarn, it is always easier to pair it up with another ball of acrylic yarn of the same color.Panda Tutorial 1

    The “wrong side” of the yarn is often used as the right side when it comes to working with fuzzy yarn.Panda Tutorial 2
  2. Use your hands to mold the head into shape. We gave Pan-san a flatter, oblong look.Panda Tutorial 3
  3. Glue nose onto the center of Pan-san’s head.
    Sew on the eyes with backstitches. Make sure you end your stitches at the bottom of the head, then give it a slight tug to give the eyes light indentations (which make for a cuter look).
    Glue on pink brads to give Pan-san a pop of blush on the cheeks.
    You may customize Pan-san’s lips (to give him more of a smile) by using a darning needle to gently loosen the black crochet thread that forms the upside-down “V”.Panda Tutorial 4

  4. Pin the parts into place to check for sizing before you start sewing on everything.
    Sew on the ears.
    Sew body onto the head.
    Sew on the arms and legs.Panda Tutorial 5
  5. Assemble the bag by folding one end to the center of the piece then make backstitches to secure in place. This will be the bottom of the bag. Fold the other end over the top and “button up” with a brad.
    To create a sling bag look, make sure the strap is passed through Pan-san’s right arm near the neck. The strap should exit at the back of the arm and looped back onto the bag with a knot.Panda Tutorial 6
  6. You may lightly trim the surface of Pan-san’s face to give the features more definition.Panda Tutorial 7
