I really LOVE to see how people’s Funky Friends turn out. The Funky Friends Factory Facebook Fan Club is awesome because I get to see some of amazing stuffed animals people make from my toy patterns – and it’s a great place for people to get ideas for different fabric choices for their softies too!



It’s always so hard as I love every photo that I see, I guess it’s like trying to choose a favourite child – they’re ALL unique and special in their own way. BUT this month the winner has to be Shirley! She posted this incredible version of my Raff the Giraffe Toy Sewing Pattern. Shirley says she’s a volunteer for the S.E.S, and had a thought to make some little mascots. She’s made Raff Giraffes in fleece the colour as the S.E.S orange uniforms and they even have the reflective tape on their legs!!! How cute are they? Congrats Shirley  – I’ll send you a Facebook message to find out which Funky Friends Factory Toy Sewing Pattern you’ll choose for your prize.
