Funky Friends Factory is coming to AMERICA!!!

I’m so excited because I am going have a booth at the International Spring Quilt Market in Minneapolis this year!!!!

I have to admit I am also getting a bit nervous about going to America…

It’s such a BIG STEP for me, besides the cost and logistics of getting myself and my Funky Friends half way around the world, the time-frame is making me feel like I have bitten off more than I can chew? BUT …. I guess – you just have to go for it or you get nowhere? 😀

So to celebrate the occasion, I couldn’t resist designing my first

AMERICAN toy pattern ~

Bill the Bald Eagle!

The Bald Eagle Pattern is available as an INSTANT DOWNLOAD PDF pattern so you can get it right now, download it right NOW and start sewing! : )

You will be able to sew the Bald Eagle real quick too because I have made a detailed photo tutorial to show you how easy it is to sew your own bald eagle toy!

I can’t believe I am actually going to be in the USA!

I am still pinching myself!


If any of you are going to be at Quilt Market, I thought I had better let you know where I’ll be so you can come and say g’day to me. I will be at booth 237.
