West Norwood FEAST invaded by pandas

Not literally! I was asked down to the West Norwood FEAST in South London to do a bit of sewing at the last market, on Sunday. Let's just say the forecast wasn't ideal... rain, rain and more rain!

We huddled underneath our tent and enjoyed a morning of sewing nonetheless! It was a very cosy session sewing some panda pocket warmers... it's only a shame we didn't have a microwave on site to warm them up with once they were done!

Check out how these cute pandas turned out!

They're a cinch to make too, it's a simple square sachet (about 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" in size) with a little face embroidered on one side. We sewed them together, right sides facing in and then once we turned them right side out, we filled them with a mixture of rice and lavender.

All they need now is 10-15 seconds in the microwave and them pop one into your pocket to keep it cosy and warm.
