A little Panda Bear.... hooded towel

I got a request for a panda towel for my etsy shop and didn't like any of the panda files that I had on hand, so I purchased this one from DBEmbroidery designs on etsy.
I love it!!! Isn't it cute??

The funny thing is... the first towel I did messed up in the middle and ate my towel... ugh!.... so I took it out and finished it up with the regular machine, leaving off the last couple of steps on the file- which were the eyes.

Then I made the other one and it worked perfectly... the thing is... I kinda like the first one without the eyes better. What do you guys think???

I'm letting the customer pick which one she likes better and giving the other one to Hay-yah (my little panda bear)

I ended up losing money on this order... with a $5 towel, $3.50 hand towel, $3.99 embroidery file, plus stabilizers/thread and etsy, paypal, and shipping fees- UGH! But at least it turned out cute... maybe I'll get repeat business from her. I hope so.

Now someone get me in gear to make those flower girl dresses!

Oh, that towel turned out DARLING!!!! You do a great job at those! Sorry to hear about you losing money on that sale- what a bummer. I bet you def have a repeat customer though. It's just too cute.
