As requested by a couple people, I have put together a photo tutorial of how to sew Precious Pandas together. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
The first thing you will need to do is crochet all the pieces of your panda. You can find the free pattern on Ravelry and on Craftsy.
With your yarn needle and the remaining tail from the head, sew the remaining hole closed.
Weave in and out of the last 5 sts remaining, pulling them to close.
Cut the left over tail.
Next, you will sew the head and body together.
Making sure your eyes are facing in the desired position, use pins to hold the head and body in place while you sew.
With your yarn needle, sew back and forth between the body and the head, grabbing some yarn from each piece (the head and body) and pulling close.
Repeat around the entire head. You may want to go back around the head and body 2-3 times to ensure there are no openings anywhere.
Cut the remaining tail after sewing the head and body together.
