Jake is the only Funky Friends pattern that is FULLY JOINTED. The inspiration for Jake came from a teddy-making course. I used my new jointing skills to make Jake a fully jointed posable puppy.
Although he is the most advanced Funky Friends pattern, the pattern comes with simple diagrams and clear instructions so he should be simple for someone with a bit of bear making experience. Jake can sit, stand, lie down and he can cock his head to one side, which gives him an adorable little puppy look. He's a hit with kids of all ages - so make a few at the same time!
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!
