It's been wonderful seeing the dolls you have been making with my animal doll sewing patterns for the past two months. I love seeing which fabrics you choose and the extra details you include. It is inspiring and brings a smile to my face every time I imagine everyone sewing the same dolls together in homes across the world
I share all the photos that you share of dolls in my Instagram stories and save them into the folders on the profile page of my Instagram account so you can view them at any time. It's a great place to look for inspiration!
Each month my daughter Seren, who is 11, chooses her favourite photo to be crowned Maker of the Month and they win a free sewing pattern. Things have been hectic here this month and I am a little behind with things, so this post includes the winners for December and January
There are too many photos to share, so instead, Seren has chosen some of her favourite photos from each month below. Read on to hear what she said about them and to find out who she chose as her Makers of the Month!

I try my hardest to include all the photos that are shared with me in my Instagram stories.

I always publish a blog post to announce the winners of my Maker of the Month or Sew Alongs before I reach out to the winners personally. So, if you receive any messages claiming that you've won a prize from me, please check my website before responding. Sadly, some individuals create fake accounts and pretend to be businesses running prize draws, aiming to deceive followers into sharing personal and bank details. Please know that I would never ask you to provide personal information to claim your prize.

Thank you for taking the time to share your creations. I can't begin to tell you how happy I am to see them! It inspires me to make more animal doll sewing patterns
