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!

Announcing the winner of our ๐Ÿ’—Tula Pink Everglow fabric and Funky Friends Factory pattern Giveaway!๐Ÿ’—

May 8, 2023 | Blog, Competitions & Giveaways

We’ve drawn a winner in our ๐Ÿ’— Tula Pink – Everglow ๐Ÿ’—Competition!

I was so excited by the HUGE response to this GIVEAWAY ~> obviously there are a lot of people who want to sew Funky Friend’s toy patterns in Tula Pink fabrics… like ME!

We had a huge range of suggestions entered!

With so many gorgeous fabrics in this range, I think the Everglow fabric would be great for sewing ANY of the Funky Friends Factory toy patterns – NOT just the 4 toys that Tula Pink sewed herself – and some people have ALREADY been having some fun sewing Funky Friends toys with the fabrics..

Sue Okeefe whipped up a funky, pink & purple Everglow elephant with the GOOD LUCK ELEPHANT toy sewing pattern.

I spotted this photo online and cannot find it again to give the maker a credit – if it’s YOU – please leave me a comment below and I’ll add your name here! ๐Ÿ’—

This is NOT the elephant that Tula sewed, BUT it’s JUST as cute in Everglow! Robyn Lieberman sewed Ellie Elephant in Tula Pink’s Everglow fabrics with a mix of spots and fairy dust and the pink elephant colour way.ย

And this sweet Heather Hippo was sewn by Cheryl Wilson Kirk – look at that clever fussy-cutting placement of the hippo on Heather’s forehead!
