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!
