Plattie is the first "Aussie Mates" Funky Friend. He is also one of the SIMPLEST Funky Friends patterns so I always recommend this pattern for beginner toy-makers and for children. He is suited to most fabrics but I like making him out of fleece which gives him a warm furry feel! With his cute little upturned bill and squidgy body, he's bound to get loads of cuddles.
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!
