Joey is a very simple pattern. He's a great project for a beginner as he is quick and easy to make and he is made from only one fabric. Fleece makes him really cuddly but any stretch fabric should be fine.
This baby kangaroo with his nappy/diaper makes a lovely toy for girls and boys. If you are making Joey for an adult, you can add your own baby accessories with a dummy on a chain around his neck and some safety pins in his nappy.
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!
