There were so many beautiful creations made with my animal doll sewing patterns in June. I feel inspired to get out my sewing machine and start sewing! It is wonderful to see handmade bears, bunnies and dogs being made all over the world. I love the little details and personal touches you have added to your dolls to make them extra-special gifts!
Each month I collate all of the photos shared with me of the dolls that you have made using my patterns. My daughter Seren, who is 10, gets the fun job of choosing one person to be crowned Maker of the Month. That person will receive their choice of one sewing pattern from my website. They can wait until I launch a new sewing pattern if they already have all of them. Read on to find out who she has chosen this month!
This gorgeous bunny was made by Jo in Australia for her friend's 50th birthday. Jo made the outfit to match her friend's dress for her party. Such a thoughtful and special gift!

Obsessed with this adorable panda that Kira in the States made! Kira said "Excellent pattern! Very well written with many photos and helpful hints. If you are new to toy-making this is a very good place to start. And if you are an experienced toy maker this would be a wonderful addition to your library. I highly recommend it!"
It has been so lovely to start seeing some dog dolls made with my new sewing pattern this month! It makes me smile so much seeing how much enjoyment you are getting out of making my patterns.
Seren really struggled to choose a winner again this month, but one doll really won her heart!
Congratulations to Pauline! Seren loved the fabrics and colours you chose for your bunny. She said, "I am in love with this bunny and wish she could come and live with me!" I will get in touch with Pauline so she can choose her free pattern!

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.
