Welcome to the new Panda Commerce Page!
In addition to special projects such as my Kickstarter pin projects, I have re-established a shop on Redbubble, with several image designs on a variety of items. The site is a bit clunky, (although this is supposed to improve soon) and you have to click trough the various designs to see what items they are featured on.
I hope you’ll stop by and take a look. As we all know, life is better when there are pandas around! Check out the PandaChronicle page on Redbubble today!
The Felty Panda Project: Hold Me Closer Tiny Panda
Who knew that tiny (about 3 inches tall) needle felted emotional support pandas would be such a popular thing? My recent Kickstarter project in January proved that every day should be take your panda to work day. Now that I am wrapping up the last of the felty panda production from this project I am ready to start taking order for more pandas, for those who have either missed the completed Kickstarter project, or realize that they needed more pandas!
These three inch tall bears are needle felted by me from (mostly) Whidbey Island wool from Whidbey Island sheep. Each of these little bears is unique, and small enough to carry with you in a pocket. They are all made with a soft, squishy core, so if you are having an unpleasant meeting at work, you can reach in your pocket and give him a little squeeze! Most of the wool I’m using is sourced from a local business, Abundant Earth Fibers. If you are a knitter (or needle felter!) they have a great website and ship all over the US.

Babette de Panda (always deluxe!): $75
Babette de Panda comes as unique editions. While there are some variations for all of the pandas, with Babette, I am letting my artistic impulses run wild! If you have a concept in mind, (For instance, the Babette above was asked for as “spooky, Halloween Babette”) feel free to share your idea with me, and I’ll see if I can do it. Because they are unique pandas, I will send you a picture for you to approve before completing the order and sending you an invoice.

Who wants a panda?
Fill out form with the required information and
in the message section (“Please send me all the things”), include the panda name(s) and quantity you would like. Please include your shipping address in the appropriate field. This information will not show up publicly on the blog.
I will email you with the amount due, including tax and shipping, and then send you a Square invoice. You do not need a Square account, they will ask you for your credit card information. Do not include credit card information on this form.
example: I want a set of Washi tapes and a Ruth Panda Ginsbear
my address is:
Please note: The pandas are unique hand needle felted bears, made one at a time by me, so actual bears will vary a little. Orders will be completed in the order received. Please allow 4-8 weeks for delivery. If there are any delays caused by high demand, I will contact you before sending an invoice.
A Note on Panda Commerce: As you may know, I am a one bear band. This means I am not on the computer all the time. (Well, some days it may seem like I am, but really…) Don’t worry if you don’t hear back immediately. I can see the order that the messages come in, and will contact you and send the invoices in that order. In other words, if you haven’t heard from me, no one else has either! Doesn’t that make you feel better?
The Washi Tapes
Produced by the folks at Alchemy (Formerly Pin Game Strong), these are the folks that produce my pins and patches. Now they are offering Washi tape, a decorative tape with many uses.
Available as a set of 4 for $20+ $4 shipping (can be combined with felty pandas. Count as an additional panda in calculating shipping price)
WASHI TAPE IS HERE!
Pins and patches from my previous Kickstarter projects. If you’re curious and can’t wait, please ask! It may spur me to getting around to photographing them.
