Introducing Zhu Zhu

I am very proud to introduce my newest design
Zhu Zhu - meaning Bamboo

I have really stretched myself creating this panda
He is made from a 43 piece pattern
with a double jointed neck
This allows him extra poses,
he can reach to the stars or look down to his toes.

I also tried a new for me, paw technique.
These paws are appliqued on
complete with stuffing to plump them up
Zhu Zhu has been entered into the Peoples Choice contest
being held by The Sydney Teddy Bear Fair
I am so excited for him
Zhu Zhu is a 2010 Finalists
for the People's Choice Awards!!
If you would like to place your vote for Zhu Zhu
he and his mum would really appreciate it!!
Well done to all the other artists bears who are finalists
I am very please for Zhu Zhu to be among such fine work displayed
