July was another month full of creativity and inspiration in the Studio Seren community! The photos you share of the cute dolls made with my animal doll sewing patterns always bring a smile to my face. It’s so wonderful seeing the colours you choose and the personal details you add to your dolls to make them unique
I share your photos in my Instagram stories throughout the month, saving all the photos in the highlight folders on my Instagram page. It’s a great place to go if you are looking for inspiration or just to see the wonderful work of our community
At the end of each month my daughter Seren, who is 11, has the fun job of choosing a handful of her favourite photos for me to share here on my website. She selects one of the photos as her Maker of the Month and the person who sent it receives a free sewing pattern of their choice

Seren loved Suzie's lamb! She said "Her dress is so pretty and her face is so cute! She's perfect!"
Seren was also really impressed with the bear that Lucy and her daughter made together and asked if they could win a prize too, so there are two Maker of the Month prizes this month! You can't help but smile when you see their rainbow bear!

I try my hardest to include all the photos that are shared with me in my Instagram stories. If I've missed your photo please let me know and I will share it and make sure it is included the following month when Seren chooses her Maker of the Month.

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.
