On my way home ~ 1940's Panda

This little 1940's Panda is all done and on his way back home today. I added a red plaid ribbon, like the 1940's Cuddle Panda shown in the Teddy Bear Encyclopedia.

He looks lovely in red and is all set to show off his new look. It was great fun restoring him back to his former glory. Thank you Susan, for the opportunity to work on your Dad's childhood teddy. ~ Karen
