I have more around the house, these are just the ones currently in my room when I wrote them down!
There are 251 in this list, cut for length, of course! ;)

Too many, yet not enough!Collapse )

Do you ever find a song that the lyrics say exactly how you're feeling about something?

This is definitely one of them..

Donate rice AND learn interesting words!
It's actually kind of addictive. :P
And fun =)
And charitable!

So, what's the downside? Nothing, really. Other than time consuming, but what isn't? :p
There is no time limit on it, so if you're waiting for a download or something, it works!

2330 grains I donated the first day I played. >_>; I was bored. D:
I even got my mom to "play" too! We sat at the same table and laughed about some of the outrageous words we were getting!

I was also very excited when words came up that I knew! Majority is really guess work.. but it kind of sticks with you anyway after a while, so it feels like you get smarter! ;) *snickers*

...Okay, the end. :)

PS. Today marks the two month countdown until Texas. >)

If you haven't heard of it, then I highly suggest you invest some of your spare time into


These two are greatly amusing! Endless hours of fun can be had watching them!
I spent the last two days watching all 150+ of their videos. >_>;

They're about 4 minutes or less per video, so if I watched 150 4 minute videos that's 600 minutes, which is 10 hours... I spent ten hours watching these two Nerds talk to each other... I wont even ask for those hours back, because I say that it was my time well spent (notice how I said *my* time. This isn't your time, so you don't need to complain.... unless you, too, watch all the videos and decide it was not worth it. :P)

Granted, not all of them were 4 minutes, and many were only 3.. we'll just stick to 10 hours though!

Anyway! They're very interesting folk, I actually kind of learn things from them.. which is nifty.
Like... it is not possible to eat more than 12.5 peeps in one sitting! I bet you didn't know that.

Watch it. Love it. Embrace it.
Nerd Fighters for Life.
The end.

Ears = Markings
Eye = Eyes
Background = Badge

If any steps are unclear and you need extra help, please feel free to ask! If people are having trouble with the same steps, I will edit the entry to try to explain it more clearly. :)

Making Your Pandalamb is a Twelve Step Program. Haha, it wasnt planned that way, but I think if you are taking these twelve steps to make a pandalamb... you may want to consider another 12 Step Program....... *coughs* >_>

Step One: Pictures, Pictures, Pictures!
Figure out what a pandalamb looks like. - In other words, get some references!

Step Two: Get those items!
Collect the needed items, making sure you have everything!
List of Pandalamb items:
Sewing Machine (to do it by hand would take FOREVER)
Fabric for his body
Fabric for his arms
Fabric for his Mouth
Two buttons for eyes
Thread to match body and arm fabric
Thread to sew on buttons
Cotton/Old Fabric/Spaghetti/Toast = Something to fill your Pandalamb with. (Note: The / is "or" please do not try to stuff all of those in your Pandalamb together.)
** Seam Ripper <--- Incase of mistakes. :P

Step Three: Draw your Pandalamb! (You do NOT need to be an artist, trust me. :P)
Sketch your pandalamb onto the fabric (Make sure to do this on the side that is NOT going to show!).
Everyones will be different depending on the size you want to make yours, and/or if you want the head to be seperate or not - I've chosen to keep it all one piece to save time. :p
Then sketch out the arms - If you make your pandalamb with the arms attached, goodluck. =P
*Be sure to have EXTRA space on the open end so that you can sew these to the body

When you have the sketch you think is a good size (please keep in mind that you will need to leave some "stitch" room, this means that however big you want your pandalamb, make the cutouts a bit larger for when you sew the pieces together - your sketch size should always be about an inch bigger than what you want when its complete) cut out the shapes [like kindergarten!]
Remember!! - You will need TWO body cut outs and FOUR arm cut outs.

Step Four: Sewing your arms
Pin two sides of your ARMS together around the outside, making sure that the side you want showing is NOT visible (put your two pieces nice sides touching.) - Do this for both arms (duh!), then sew along the edges. Make sure you leave a good CM from the very edge so that your fabric does not shred when you stuff the arms.

Step Five: Stuff your arms
When you are done sewing, pull the arms "inside out" so that your stitching and extra cm boarder are now INSIDE the arm, and you have a clean edge. Then stuff your arms! - You can use just about anything to stuff your pandalamb but please keep in mind: If you use Toilet Paper, and Pandalamb gets wet.... blegh :P
I have used some "old" fabric (its nice fabric, but I'll be taking mine apart later to change his stuffing) - In most stuff animals, they use that white fluffy stuff. This can be bought at a craft store.
You will want to try to make your arms relatively even, and make sure to stuff them a lot (unless you want floppy arms <_<), but not too much (unless you want super buff pandalamb).
Note: You will want to stuff it farther in so that when you sew, you aren't sewing over your stuffing. You can even this out after you have sewn the arms onto the body.

Step Six: Pinning the arms onto the body - This is kind of tricky!
You will have to pin your arms BETWEEN your two body pieces, leaving the excess fabric that I mentioned earlier sticking out. (View picture if you do not understand) - Make sure the right sides are touching! The side you want showing when you are done must be touching, you don't want to have to fix this!
Once you have pinned your arms on, pin around all or most of your pandalambs body. You want to make sure that, even with the arms between the two pieces of fabric, your pieces match up. (My picture only shows the arms pinned on, but I did pin around his body! If I hadn't, it would prove to be very difficult to keep the pieces matched up, could possibly mess up and waste lots of time.)

Step Seven: Sewing the arms onto the body - Go slow!
Once you have pinned your arms on, and have pinned around pandalambs body, you can start to sew around the edge! - Remember to leave that CM from your stitching to the edge.
When I sewed mine, I went over the arm pieces, 'reversed' the machine to go over them again, then went over it again and continued around his body. I did this to hold the arms on securely. This step can be skipped and you can just go over the arm area a second time once you have finished sewing his body together.
(Please excuse my horrible fast sewing :P To make yours look nicer, take your time!)

Important Note!! - Leave a space open so that you can pull him right side out! It does not have to be a large opening, but make sure you can pull the arms through.

Sex Eight: Pull your pandalamb right side out!
Pull the fabric from the inside out, if you grab the arms and pull them (be gentle, you don't want to rip them off <_<) through the opening it makes it a bit easier. - Pull until all of it is flipped, then stuff your hand/finger/something (depending on the size) in to push against the edge to make a nice clean edge.

Step Nine: This can be skipped, depending on the size of your pandalamb or functionality!
Place a flat, somewhat heavier object (such as an old VHS tape) into your pandalamb - This will help your pandalamb sit upright while you are not playing with him/her! (This also helps for taking photos of pandalamb without needing something to lean them on! - See tacky photos at end!)

Step Ten: Stuff that Pandalamb!
Stuff it! Stuff it real good! - How you stuff your pandalamb depends on how flexible you want them to be! The more you put in there, the less flexible. Keep in mind that if you don't put enough, they'll just flop all over the place! This is a very basic and simple step.. I don't think I need to go into much detail. :)

Step Eleven: Give your pandalamb a face!
This is the easy bit, before stuffing your pandalamb (can be done after, but its just a tad harder - I did mine after), mark where you want the eyes, then sew on the buttons (or whatever you want to use for eyes). I used Velcro for my pandalambs mouth,  thinking that I may want to have changeable mouth pieces! If you just want one mouth, simply cut out fabric in the shape you want the mouth and stitch it on. :)

Step Twelve: Stitch 'em up!
Once you have finished stuffing your pandlamb, stitch up the opening! - This should be done with a hidden stitch (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=13016.msg103076) if you can manage it. This will make the pandalamb much cleaner looking. I didn't do this on mine because I was too lazy, but when I remake it, I will be using this. -- If you would like help on how to do this, feel free to ask. :)

You are now complete, and have your very own Pandalamb!
Congratulations to anyone who has made their own! :D

Now, to finish off this post, here are some tacky pictures of my Pandalamb!

The End. <3 :)
