*** DID YOU KNOW? ***
You can get the pattern for FREE
when you sign up for the
Funky Friends Factory newsletter!

I wanted to use Honey as my beginner’s soft toy pattern because she was MUCH EASIER than a traditional jointed teddy bear BUT NOT TOO SIMPLE, so that you can learn LOTS of general softie sewing skills by making her.  I also have a video on the website homepage for you to see how to sew Honey. Once you have learnt the basics of sewing your Honey Teddy, I am sure you will be able to make & sew toys using any of the Funky Friends toy patterns!
