My second alphabet is complete. This was way too much fun. The squares are attached vertically in 5 rows. The letters are made from bamboo leaves that I pressed then scanned in three sizes and printed out. The black parts of the fur are elephant dung paper for texture. The nose has a very small pattern of leather grain, like a cat or dog's nose has. The eyes are mirror paper with a tiny bit of black peeled away so there is a white edge.The white fur around the head is embroidery floss pieces. The U is separate, hanging from the Z. It asks the question "What can U do to help?" As we know, pandas need all the help they can get.
If I have the nerve, I may color the paper hinges in the black areas black. I think his nose looks funny with the white strip showing. Now I have to figure out how to package everything.
Thanks for looking.
