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!

Yeehar ~ the NEW Turkey pattern is READY!

Nov 9, 2021 | Blog, NEW Toy Patterns

I decided to “play around” with a completely different pattern design for THANKSGIVING because I was stalled on the Wolf design… and guess what?


I LOVE it!!! 😍


I hope you’ll love him too! He’s an EASY, FUN sew, so I think you’ll be able to whip him up in time for Thanksgiving dinner! 



So how does testing work?

We now have over a thousand people applying to test each new pattern, and I just can’t get to read all the applications OR give away that many free patterns each time! So we tried out a new way to do testing (to let as many people as possible be able to test my new patterns) and it worked out really well with the Coco Chameleon testing, so we’ll be doing testing like that again…

So, ANYONE can be a Tester ~>

You don’t have to be a very experienced sewer or even a brilliant toy-maker. You can test the pattern even if you have NEVER sewn a toy before!


You need to be FREE to test in the next 10 days!!!


*** We have a deadline!***

You need to be able to sew up the toy and send in the photographs by the deadline date – November 20th, 2021 (In YOUR time zone!)  You will need to buy the pattern first and sew a Turkey toy – so you can answer the Feedback Survey questions AND send in photos of your finished toy. 

Once your feedback is received  ~> you’ll receive a Tester’s THANK YOU VOUCHER* so you can get another Funky Friends Factory pattern for FREE! (* The voucher MUST be used within 30 days on ANY existing FFF pattern.)  


What’s GREAT about this~>

1. FFF fans will be able to get two patterns for the price of one!

2. AND I can afford to have UNLIMITED testers!!! 😃


So what do you need to do to be a TESTER?

BUY the Turkey pattern by clicking the BIG orange button below.

Sew up the Turkey pattern, fill out the TESTERS SURVEY HERE and send in your photos by the deadline date.
(The DEADLINE is 20th November 2021 – in YOUR time zone!)

Use the THANK YOU VOUCHER* to buy ANY pattern on the FFF website. (* Valid for 30 days).

NOW I can’t wait to see your Turkeys!

Till next time, happy sewing,

    Someone has requested a Guinea Pig from me and I need to buy the pattern, it would be a shame to waste the convenient opportunity to test this cutie AND get the Guinea Pig pattern… 😀

    I did it…finished Tom Turkey!!!! He’s adorable! I’ve got a pattern in mind, but that is subject to change when I start looking thru them once again. So many patterns, so many choices! Thanks for the opportunity to ‘test’ him out!
