Review of 2021’s toy pattern releases!

Jan 7, 2022 | Blog, Customer Feedback, FFF News, NEW Toy Patterns

So much fun stuff happened with the Funky Friends in 2021 it’s hard to pick what to share… in fact I eventually decided I needed to break this Year in Review into  3 separate posts – 2021 Pattern Releases, Happy Snaps from 2021 and finally YOUR favourite makes of 2021… because I know you love these highlights. 

 

First Up… the New Funky Friends from 2021.

We began with the Kelsey Keepsake Unicorn pattern. She came into being as a sew-along and I put her together as a pattern due to popular demand!

The Winsome Wolf Pattern has been the MOST difficult pattern I’ve ever designed BUT people had been begging me for a wolf for a couple of years. So I persevered and I’m so glad I did because eventually fell in love with this very sweet looking critter – who says wolves are scary??????

AND here are some happy customer feedback pics!
