Plattie was the first “Aussie Mates” Funky Friend.
He is also one of the SIMPLEST Funky Friends patterns so Pauline always recommends this pattern for beginner toy-makers and for children.
He is suited to most fabrics but making him out of fleece gives him a warm furry feel!
With his cute little upturned bill and squidgy body, he’s bound to get loads of cuddles.
RECOMMENDED FABRIC The Platypus can made from MOST fabrics – The pattern will work well with both NON-STRETCH fabrics (eg. patchwork and quilting cottons and corduroy)and also with STRETCH fabrics (eg. fleece, stretch velour, chenille and flannelette.)
