Precious Pandas - Photo Tutorial of Sewing the Pieces Together

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.

Precious Pandas CAL

The Precious Pandas CAL started a little over a week ago, I have already seen such cute and adorable pandas being created!
You can join in on this fun, free, CAL in my Ravelry group and on my Facebook page. Feel free to share pictures of your cute panda(s) in either place.
You can find the pattern free on Ravelry by clicking HERE, or on Craftsy by clicking HERE.
The Precious Pandas CAL will be up until February 20th in my Ravelry group, but of course you can keep making many more pandas after this date as well. Precious the Purple Panda will remain a free pattern. On February 21st, if you have a project page set up on Ravelry with a picture of your finished panda and have shared a picture of your panda in the group thread, you will be entered in a random drawing using to win ANY pattern of your choice from my Ravelry Store. Only 1 entry per person, if you make 10 pandas you will still be entered in the drawing only once. I will gift two people with the pattern of their choice. C…
