More Funky Friends Factory toys this week.

Funky Friends Factory Baby Bunny Pink Sample 01
Baby Bunny in Bunny Goth Scatter Pink and ghostly White by Voodoo Rabbit (made by Cloud)

Mitch the Monkey in Early Bird Floral Stripe Chocolate by Cosmo Cricket with Gold homespun cotton

Look at his cute little toes!

Mitch's face was quite challenging to sew, I had to stay-stitch around the head piece just inside the 5mm seam allowance. I then clipped the curves around the eyes and cheeks, this allowed me to be able to ease the head piece around the curves on the face piece and avoid puckering. I then hand basted the pieces together before machine sewing the head to the face with the face piece on the bottom.

Even after this it was still quite difficult to sew the curves over the eyes. On my first attempt the fabric folded a bit over each eye and I had to unpick these sections and resew them. The rest of the pattern is very straight forward to sew.
Have you been creative this week?

Last week we made up a some custom bunting for the lovely Michelle from Journal Addiction. Now that she has picked it up we can share it with the rest of you:)

Cherry Dot Bunting 01
She chose the Cherry Dot in pink and natural by Kiyohara, Japan. The binding was handmade using a natural colour homespun cotton.

Cherry Dot Bunting 03

We think that this bunting is going to look super sweet decorating her market stall, what do you think?
