Thanks to everyone who requested a panda plush tutorial, I hope you will enjoy this! A panda is trickier to make than many other animals because of the black patches around the eyes and ears. I really wanted to think of a method that doesn't require making all the black parts separately. Then last week I suddenly realised that the double-sock method from the sheep plush could work and I'm really happy with how it turned out.

*I bought my socks from H&M. They're often sold out online but if you go into any real H&M shop, they should almost definitely have these socks in the women's section near the checkout tills.

1) The most important part of this DIY is sewing the edges of the white fabric onto the black. You need to use small stitches and make sure these are close together so there are no gaps for the stuffing to pop out.

2) The fluffy sock fabric is very stretchy so you have to be careful whenever you're cutting into it. Don't cut too much or make the eye circles too large because the fabric will stretch to almost twice the size when cut open.

3) Normally when stuffing a sock plush, you can always fit way more stuffing inside than you imagine. The only exception I've come across so far was the face of this panda plush. I had to use much less stuffing than usual because the outer sock enhances the shape and too much stuffing will cause the head to look too big and misshapen.
