Assembling

Legs: After you’ve finished crocheting all pieces, start sewing the legs onto the body. Start sewing the first leg onto the body directly over the edge that was created by the round that was crocheted only into the back loop. Sew on the second leg 4 to 5 stitches left or right from the first leg, again just over the edge.

Arms: Sew the arms left and right onto the body, 1 stitch row under the “neck”. Do not sew the arms directly over the legs but slightly behind the legs.

Eyes: Attach the safety eyes after the 7th stitch row counting from the top center of the head. The eyes are 4 stitches apart from each other.

Ears: Press the ears together so that they are arched outward to one side. Sew the ears after the 2nd stitch row to the left and right from the center of the head. Sew on the ears in an arc running backwards, so that the ears are sewn on with a small inward arching.

Muzzle: Sew the muzzle onto the head centered below the eyes.

Nose: Embroider the nose with a Black thread. Embroider the nose on the middle of the just sewn on muzzle. To do this, pull the thread horizontally several times from one stitch through the next, skipping 1 stitch between those stitches.

Bamboo: Use a khaki colored thread to sew the bamboo shoot to the end of one of the arms (scientists are not sure yet if Panda’s are left or right handed).
