This is Ninja Panda, complete with felt throwing stars. I designed and made Ninja Panda for a customer who had a little baby boy last year and his nickname had become Ninja Panda, probably because he was chubby and awesome. I’m not convinced he would be the most effective Ninja with his tubby belly and stubby arms but I’m sure he’d try his very best.
The challenge of creating something based on a theme is one I enjoy because it always manages to push me further than I would normally go and this one did just that. The first time I have made any kind of clothing for a toy and it was tough but the result was definitely worth the struggle!
