NEW Funky Friends Factory pattern – Licorice the Lemur – who loves to “Move it, move it!

Jul 3, 2020 | Blog, NEW Toy Patterns

Yeehar! My Lemur sewing pattern is ready for release to the general public!


So without further ado ~>

Licorice the


Licorice is a big-eyed, baby lemur who loves to “Move it, move it! 🙂 I designed his tail, arms and legs so that he can sit down or leap around from tree to tree, just like a REAL lemur! He has lots of pieces so I wouldn’t recommend this pattern for a beginner BUT he’s so cute you’ll definitely want to give him a go, once you’ve tried one of my easy toy patterns, (if you are a beginner sewer or are new to sewing toys).

Recommended Lemur fabrics:

The Lemur toy can be sewn in most fabrics. I sewed Licorice out of quilting cottons but stretch (knit) fabrics like fleece or Cuddle would be nice and snuggly! He also looks great in every colour combination you could think of. 

Look at all these lovely feedback photos!!!!
