I love the amazing dolls you've been creating using my animal doll sewing patterns over the past couple of months! It's incredible to see how each doll looks unique despite being made from the same pattern. Your fabric choices and personal touches truly bring each doll to life
I feel so lucky that you share your beautiful creations with me. I love to showcase your photos in my Instagram stories and save them to the highlight folders on my profile page, where they serve as a source of inspiration for others
Every month, my daughter Seren, who is 11 years old, selects her favourite photo as her Maker of the Month. The lucky winner receives a free sewing pattern! It's been a busy time as we approach Easter, so I'm running a bit behind on things, but I'm thrilled to share the winners for both February and March in this post

Maker of the Month
Seren faced her usual challenge of selecting just one favourite for each month, and found it difficult to choose. She even suggested that everyone could win this time! However, she eventually managed to pick one for each month that caught her heart!
Seren's Maker of the Month for February is Laura! Seren said "They are the cutest bear couple ever! I love that she made them for her granny and grandad!"
Seren's Maker of the Month for March is Micheline! Seren said "I love her mouse's outfit, especially the glasses. She looks really really cute!"
I will get in touch with Laura and Micheline so they can choose their free patterns! Congratulations ladies!
