Posted under BlogFFF News on 2017-04-08 01:55:06

I am soooooooooooooo excited because I have been invited to join in with Toy Club 2017, the funky Toy Sewing Club being run by my fabulous friend Kylie from the Voodoo Rabbit Fabric Shopor did I invite MYSELF? Doesn’t matter – I get to cut up Tula Pink fabric for the Patch Pussy Cat KITS!!!


So what is Toy Club?

It’s a Subscription Sewing Club for people who LOVE to sew Funky Friends Factory Soft Toys in super-cool fabrics! Over six months you will get 6 Toy Kits made up with Funky Friends Factory patterns combined with awesome fabrics and necessary notions from Voodoo Rabbit Fabric – it’s a match made in toy-making heaven!

How does Toy Club work?

This year we’ve decided to spice things up a little bit because a lot of you have a LOT of my patterns already (Thank you!) and we want you to have the option to get some totally NEW Toy Kits!

First up, you get to choose 3 of these 6 existing Kits that we have already prepared 3 of these 6 existing Kits that we have already prepared that we have already prepared…

Choose 3 Kits

Why ONLY 3 you ask?

Well, this is the exciting bit – you will also receive 3 ‘surprise’ KITS!!! These kits will have brand NEW (never before released) Funky Friends Factory Patterns…. that’s right…. 3 totally NEW, NEVER BEFORE RELEASED toy patterns that no one has ever seen – pretty cool huh?!

You get 6 Toy Kits over 6 months

Once a month, for 6 months you will get a Toy Kit. These Kits will be the 3 you selected plus 3 brand NEW ones. ALL 6 Toy Kits will come with the Pattern and all the fabrics and notions you will need to complete the toy which will be posted out from the ultra-cool Voodoo Rabbit Fabric Shop.



How much does Toy Club cost?

Toy Club is a monthly subscription. When you sign up you will pay $32/month for 6 months plus the shipping added on. (Australia – add on $7.90, Worldwide – add on $16.00).

You will be billed one month at a time –  $32 plus postage.
(Postage: In Australia – add on $7.90, Worldwide – add on $16.00)

What’s NOT included in the KITS?

The only thing you’ll need to add will be toy stuffing. (This is because it will cost you more for us to ship this to you than it will cost for you to buy it to buy it from your local sewing/craft shop.)

Where do I sign up for Toy Club?

Toy Club Information

I’m really excited to see which Toy Kits you’ll choose from the ones we have already created… and I’m even more excited about the NEW patterns I’m designing especially for Toy Club – I think you’ll love them too!

OK, see you in Toy Club!

  1. So excited! Curious if there is a way to get the patterns in a PDF version or if we would have to buy those separately?

  2. So the price is 32 per month or 32 all 6 months?

  3. I didn’t realize until now just how much I totally LOVE your toy patterns. I already have ALL of these! Trying to decide if I mind having duplicates, it would be so much fun to see what patterns someone else thinks would look cute. I also would like to try using the Voodoo Rabbit fabrics.

    Is there a deadline as to WHEN a person needs to sign up by?

  5. Hi Shaunna, Next time I plan to use a plug-in on my website but it cost too much to get it installed and configured by the web-programmer so we went with Paypal subscription buttons this time. Having said that, I have had a PayPal account for 11 years now and have never had any issues with PP but I know lots of people are ‘anti’ PP though I don’t know why? Maybe you can let me know? 😀 Hope that explains why we used it this time! xxx Pauline

  6. Thanks Heather… I’m sorry, it’s not possible to do both, but maybe down the track I could offer 2 options? Good idea – thank you! :)
