just to prove that I did get that panda sweater done! and Rhiana loves it! wow, she is growing faster than bamboo! the sleeves are only just exactly right, good thing I didn't opt for the too-short version! ;-)
I used the semi-jacquard technique to make the larger, single panda face on the patch pouch pocket ( say that a few times!) and then sewed it to the front of the pullover - admittedly, the pocket should have been a little smaller overall but she didn't notice and she was so proud to be part of the design process!
