Su-Lin the Precocious Little Panda

Please meet Su-Lin.

She is a precocious little thing.

While the other panda cubs romp and frolic in the dirt, you will find her sitting off to the side in the thickest, cleanest patch of grass. Su-Lin always takes great care not to soil her pretty dress.

Her friends often ask, "Su-Lin, why don't you come and play with us?"

"I will," Su-Lin answers. "When you play something less grubby."

Su-lin is my very first amigurumi panda bear so I'm extra excited to share her with you. I christened her after the very first panda to come to the United States in the 1930's.

As the inaugural panda, I really wanted to dress her up to the nines. Su-Lin is wearing a smock dress cut from a Japanese cherry blossom print cotton dobby. Her dress has many crocheted details such as a puff stitch trim along the dresses edge, and a band collar with a dainty flower at the neck. Su-Lin also has a crocheted drawstring purse with beaded ties. Finally, a crochet puff petal flower with a glass bead center is tucked by her right ear.

If you would like to adopt little Su-Lin she will be listed in my shop shortly.

Thank you again for visiting!
