I post this for anyone who is organised enough to be making seasonal gifts!
You may have a small person in the family who will enjoy Plattie the Platypus, a soft toy that can be made with scrap fabric. So if you have a stash of bitty scraps of quilting cotton, fleece or corduroy this may prove to be a very useful pattern.
You will find the free Plattie the Platypus soft toy pattern here
The pattern is designed and provided free by Pauline McArthur, from Funky Friends Factory. For more tips and tutorials on toy-making, as well as heaps of great patterns visit the Funky Friends Factory website
For my readers outside of Australia a Platypus is of course an iconic Australian marsupial.
