Welcome to the Blog

Hi I’m Pauline, this blog is where I share all the latest Funky Friends Factory News, Giveaways, Competitions plus LOTS of toy-making tips & tutorials to help you sew the cutest soft toys EVER!

Meet Izzy INSOMNIAC and Sleepy SHEEPIE.

Apr 26, 2012 | Blog, NEW Toy Patterns

I seem to have more and more sleepless nights as I get older, BUT I get some of the BEST ideas for patterns in the middle of the night so I shouldn’t complain about insomnia! I am so excited to introduce my newest Funky Friend – Izzy INSOMNIAC and her friend Sleepy SHEEPIE.


Bedtime Teddy Bear

I was a bit worried about showing you a photo of Izzy Bear bare

but you need to see how cute she is naked!!!

(or without her sheep and blankie, that is!!!!)

Fleece Teddy Bear

Izzy INSOMNIAC and Sleepy SHEEPIE would be a great middle-of-the-night-project for any INSOMNIAC! And they’d  make comforting companions once they are made up.


Do you know somone who’d like to make Izzy INSOMNIAC  while they’re up ALL night????
