I've been blown away by the number of beautiful animal dolls that were made with my sewing patterns in July. I am sure you will feel inspired to get out your sewing machine when you see all the lovely teddy bears, bunny and dog dolls that have been made. Seeing them all really is my favourite thing about designing sewing patterns!
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 11, 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!

I love everything about this pattern!! The steps are very detailed with photos, and the tips are wonderful. Emma has great little video tutorials in her facebook group that shows how to stitch on the ears, arms, and legs, as well as great videos on how to embroider on the mouth and eyes.
