Fridge Critter: Pandara★♥ the Pink Panda


The third featured Fridge Critter is the panda on the left. I don't remember why I coloured her pink in the 2D drawing, but her pink fur made the transition to 3D crochet form:


Her name is Pandara★♥. She added the star and heart to her name, to reflect her individuality. Pandara★♥'s parents raised her to feel special, especially since pandas are an endangered species.


At the community garden, passerbys will ask Pandera★♥ why she's pink. She replies, "I'm 1/8th flamingo." Everyone oohs and ahhs, and she likes their reaction. "Wow, you're so exotic!"

The real reason for her pink fur is a secret:

  7. Ani: Thanks! I'm planning on trying out pattern writing & layouts for some of these Fridge Critters, when they're all finished :)

    Rebekah: hehe Thanks for your yay!

    K4TT: Oh, she's gonna love your oohs & ahhs ;) How generous of you!

    Anonymous: I'm sure she feels the same, thanks :D

    Jana: Thanks, I also like seeing each of their personalities come to life. After awhile, their stories write themselves!

    Vicki: hehe I'm glad you like the cuteness overload. It was fun setting up the bubbly Playmobil bathroom set. By the way, the expert at arranging lovely set pieces for cute amigurumi is Tada's Revolution.

  8. Very cute - just love the photo of her 'secret' in the bath. Very cool.

  9. Hahaha @ bathroom shot. Is panda aware of being photographed at such an intimate time?

  10. Once when I was in 7th grade I thought it was a good idea to dye my naturally blonde hair blue with kool aid.

    It turned out booger green.

    Unlike Pandara, I didn't need a star and a heart after my name to be considered "special".

  15. aahahahaha!! I -love- the "real" reason for her pink fur.

  16. PaisleyJade: Thanks! Here's another secret: the Kool-Aid is strawberry-kiwi flavoured :)

    pixelhazard: I think she would be furious if she knew her bathtime had been photographed for the internet! Hmm, you're overwhelming me with panda guilt now :D

    ollie: Your hair story is so hilarious! I also remember classmates dyeing their hair with Kool-Aid. Maybe you were a 7th grade trendsetter, since booger green is très chic now, non? ;)

    Shorty: Thanks :) If there was a pink panda pattern, I wonder how Pandara★♥ would feel about her clones? The photo ops are fun, plus they get me out of the house ;)

    Spenser: Super thanks :D

    Miss Julep: hehe She would like all your praise, especially the exotic part ;)

    twistyfishies: Thanks, I'm glad you find Pandera★♥ adorable :) She always stood out to me in the drawing because of her beyond-natural pink colour.

    TADA'S Revolution: Wow, thanks for the kind words! I was just talking about you and your superior bear blog ;)

    Danielle: hehe I'm glad you like the punchline! As someone who dyes his hair, I shouldn't be revealing her Kool-Aid secret, eh? Sorry, Pandara★♥!

  20. I love the stories that go along with the characters! You're so creative and I can't wait to see and read about the rest of them!

  21. Ohhh... Pandera is so adorable. I like that she's proud to be exotic. My children are 1/4 Chinese. Do you think that makes them exotic, too? He-he!
    PS. I love the little snail on the flower stalk who's admiring Pandera's loveliness.

  22. Is is possible to pass out from cuteness...'cause I'm feeling faint. She is adorable, especially in the bubble bath...*swoon* :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Eliz: I'm glad you're finding the current and future Fridge Critters cute! :) Thanks for the first "kawaii" compliment I've received on this blog so far ;)

    Elisa: Thanks a bunch for the encouragement! When you're not outside having fun in the sun this summer, I hope these Fridge Critters add some sunshine when staying inside! :D

    Kathy: Yes, your children have every reason to feel proudly exotic! :D

    Would it ruin the illusion by saying the bamboo stalk only resembles a snail head? It's a funny coincidence that the bamboo seems to have antennae! Thanks for pointing that out :D

    Julie: Maybe Pandara★♥ also passed out from her own cuteness in the bubble bath! Being exotic & swooning is not a tub-safe activity! :D

  24. I see Miss Piggy of the Muppets, and Little JigglyPuff among the pokemon, Angelica of the Rugrats... There's always the one little starlet-type character/personality in a group like this. Little Pampered-Pink Pandara shows definite potential, and could easily be a favorite! She's a real cutie! (0;

  25. So cute >w< I love the way you shoot those lovely photos!

  26. Beansieleigh: Yes, she seems to enjoy the kind of attention that a Hollywood starlet would receive! Kool-Aid bubblebaths do seem very J.Lo! ;) Thanks!

    Rabbiz: Thanks for the photo compliments! The photos you take on your amigurumi blog are some of the most beautiful I've seen!

  27. well Kool-Aid is just the thing for the light shade she sports. I myself prefer Manic Panic, or SFX ;)

  28. Danielle: I like the bold blue of your doo! I use Fudge colour for my hair hues :D
