It's been lovely looking back at the dolls made using my animal sewing patterns in May. There have been so many cute dolls made by you all! I love the creative ways you have made the dolls your own by designing new clothes for them, up-cycling fabrics and adding extra details to them. I love it also that so many of them are being made as gifts for loved ones, young and old. Handmade dolls really are timeless and bring a smile to everyone's face!
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 bunch of beautiful bears and bunnies were all made by Jo in Australia! Lots of her friends are having babies so she made them all bunny or bear dolls. Some of them are being raffled to raise money for a charity, which is really lovely too. I love all the fabric combinations that Jo chooses!
Victoria in the UK made this sweet bunny with the help of her four-year-old daughter. I love how she has used fabric scraps to make the clothes and a duvet to line the ears.
So much cuteness in one photo! The bear was made by Christina from the States who said "This pattern was so easy to follow! This was my first “doll” or stuffed animal but I’ve been seeing for years. It is so cute, I can’t wait to make another one!"
I am in love with these bears made by Allison in the UK for a friend's wedding gift. They are absolutely adorable and make such a personal and thoughtful gift
This beautiful bunny was made by Skye for her niece. I love the coordinating outfits she has made to go with the bow
I adore this sweet little bunny made by Kelsey from Australia. She said "Amazing pattern. I am a beginner and was able to make this with no problems. It explains the steps well and I'm very happy with the outcome"
This lovely bear was made by Natalie in Australia for her daughter. The colours and fabrics she has chosen and the pom-pom detail are adorable! Can you believe she is new to sewing!!
This dapper bear was made by Maxine in New Zealand. I love the fabric combo and his pocket details!

This bear made by Nina in Germany is wonderful. I love the colours and fabrics she has chosen
This embroidered name that Allison from the UK stitched to her bunny makes it an extra special gift
This soft and sweet bear was made by Gunnhild in Norway. It's so lovely seeing you designing your own clothes for my dolls like this sweater Gunnhild made. It's so pretty

These two sweet bunnies were made by Emilee in the States for her daughters. I adore the colours and fabrics she has chosen!

Completely obsessed with this darling bunny made by Muriel from France. Muriel said "The best rabbit doll pattern. I am delighted with this purchase"
I love the fabric Julian from Colombia chose for her bunny. So cute!
I'm in love with the fabrics that Pauline in Canada chose for her bunnies. They are so soft and snuggly! And that rainbow fabric is to die for!
It makes me so happy to see dolls being made across the world again this month. I love so much that you have all used the same pattern and while you can tell they are brothers and sisters, each doll is completely unique and has its own personality. It is so lovely to see!
Seren had a really difficult time choosing a winner again this month, but one bunny grabbed her attention as soon as she saw it.
Congratulations to Adriana! Seren loved your bunny's fluffy ears and said that "the fabrics that you chose for her dress and bow were really pretty!" I will contact Adriana so she can choose her free pattern
