Panda Sleeper Boots with Plush {Tutorial}

September 08, 2009

I made this panda sleeper boots for my friend's birthday with a matching panda plush. It was quite difficult to look for a present for her because she basically owns everything already. And I cannot get her a boyfriend, so I made her a panda plush with the slipper boots so she will feel warm and cozy in winter still. She loves panda a lot and hopefully she will love my present as well.

For this project, you will need:

  •  A plain white pair of slipper boots (I got mine at La Vie En Rose)
  • 6 pearly buttons
  • Black fabric paint
  • Stuffing
  • Needle and thread

  1. I used black felt for the dark circles of the panda's eyes and stitch them using black thread. 
  2. Then I secure 2 pearl buttons for the pupils. 
  3. First, using a pencil and lightly outline the mouth on the panda's face. 
  4. Using a black fabric paint and go over outline carefully.
  5. Stitch the nose made by cutting an oval out of felt.

  6. Stitch a black pom pom at the back for the panda's tail with thread.

  7. Sew a panda with felt holding a bamboo and place inside the boots

I think these are quite cute. Sorry, I didn't take pictures of the process, hopefully you guys are still able to follow through the steps. Have fun!
