Rusty the Red Panda is a mischievous little cutie that made his way to Jo’s Home from the distant Himalayas! He LOVES snoozing in the branches of trees (when he’s not playing all sorts of practical jokes on the other animals at our home).

Several designers from around the world got together to work with Joke Vermeiren (a graphic designer/publisher in Belgium) to create a pattern book filled with super cute animals. In 2012, our first indie project, a book called Zoomigurumi, was born! :D Since then, more books have been published, and a few of my patterns appear in them.
