Pattern Description:

This is the very first Funky Friends Factory pattern that was designed using NON-STRETCH fabrics... a real challenge for me - especially with such a 'buxom' creature! She would like everyone to know that any lines you may see are NOT fat rolls - they are puckers in her seams... Well, who am I to burst her bubble! I think she's really cute and cuddlesome just as she is!

Excellent Wonderful toy, thank you!  April 14, 2013

I'm a quilter, so this was my first venture into toy-making. I definitely made things harder on myself with the minky fabric, but as my 2 year old said, the end result is "so huggy." I had a little difficulty with a few of the steps, but that was probably due to my unfamiliarity with toy-making. Overall the pattern is very easy to follow, even for a complete novice. It also sews up quickly, I was able to finish her in a day -- my daughter couldn't be happier with her new friend. Thank you!

Hi I'm Pauline,
My granny taught me to sew when I was about 7 and I have been making my own dolls and toys ever since!
I began making ?baby-safe bunnies? for my friends? newborn babies with sewn on faces and no choke-able bits, and have been designing my Funky Friends for about 10 years now!
I hope you'll enjoy my critters as much as I do!
