Today I'm looking back at some of the dolls that have been made with my bunny and bear sewing patterns since I shared some of your bunnies in my blog post last month. It is inspiring to see people across the world making dolls with my sewing patterns. I love seeing the fabrics you choose and the creative ways that you have customised your bears and bunnies to make them unique.
My daughter Seren had the difficult decision to choose the first Maker of the Month. For this first time, I've included all the dolls made in March and April that have been shared with me. The winner will receive one sewing pattern from my website or be able to wait until I launch a new sewing pattern if they have them already. Read on to find out who she chose!
Hannah in the US shared this cute bunny she made for her niece and said "Pattern was easy to follow, even if you're a first time sewer! My niece is going to LOVE this!" The fabrics she chosen are perfect for Spring!
Another sweet little bunny made by Sarah in Germany. The furry fabric she has used for the ears makes her bunny look so soft and gentle, and I love the fabrics she has chosen for her clothes.
It has been exciting seeing dolls being made with my new bear sewing pattern. This panda that Luxuria in Mexico made is adorable! I love his stripy overalls
This sweet bunny was made by Rita in Italy for her granddaughter Olivia's birthday. What a lovely and special gift!
Anne from the US chose the prettiest fabric for her bear's overalls. She said "Very cute little pattern, easy to sew, and understand."
This beauty was made by Hayley in Australia. Doesn't she look lovely in those floral fabrics! Hayley said "Great pattern!! Instructions were helpful and easy to follow."
I absolutely love these teddy bears that were made by Alison in the UK. She has chosen such sweet fabrics and I love how she has added a trim to the overall pocket. This little detail makes it look really different.
Bee from the US shared this lovely bunny she made. The green fabric she chose for the dress is such a lovely shade!
Danielle from Canada has been busy making bunnies for her children! I love how she has used all the different options available in my bunny sewing pattern to make each bunny look different and unique.
This brightly coloured bear was made by Luxuria in Mexico and really brings a smile to your face!
Hailey in the US made these adorable bunnies for her children for Easter. I love that she made her daughter a dress to match her bunny. Such a sweet and special idea for a gift!

Karen from the US shared this bunny that her friend made her for her son for Easter. She said "I don’t sew but I needed this bunny for my son. So I bought the pattern and asked my friend who does sew if she could make this for me. She did and she said the pattern was very detailed and easy to follow! I mean look at this bunny! I’m so excited to give it to my son for Easter!" What a lovely friend and special gift for your son Karen!
Camila in the US used the Spring outfit pattern to make this cheery bunny. I can just imagine her playing in the flowers!
This soft and gentle bunny was made by Kristine in the US. She said "This bunny was so fun and easy to make!"
Sara in Italy made this little sweetheart. The bow at the front of the overalls is such a lovely touch!
Ting in Australia shared this gorgeous bunny she made for her niece and said "I was a little intimidated at first because I took it on my first week sewing with a machine, but the pattern was so clear and straight forward that it put any of my doubts at bay. Plus the design was too cute to pass up! I would definitely recommend for beginner sewers who wants to take on a bigger project, and I can't wait to make more buddies for this lil lady" Thank you for your lovely feedback Ting. I would never have guessed this was your first week sewing!
Alison in the UK made this dear little bunny to raise money to help in Ukraine. The crochet carrot she has made for its pocket is super cute!
Sherri in the US made four of these bunnies to hang up in her daughter's nursery. The dresses she has designed for them are so creative. They are going to make the most beautiful decoration!
Lillia from Poland made these beautiful bears. The fabrics she chose for them are just wonderful!
Camilla in the US made these three cuties using my bear sewing pattern. I included lots of ideas for customising your bear in the pattern and it is so lovely to see her making use of them!
Another darling bear made by Vanessa in the US. It is going to be so hard for Seren to choose a favourite!
These precious bunnies made by Pauline in Canada really stole my heart. She said "I saw this pattern and I just had to try it. So so sweet! And it did not disappoint 😍 An amazingly written and beautiful pattern. I HAD to make these for someone - so I made them for my daughter and her bf for Easter. How cute are they?!"
Anthea in Australia has been busy making a rainbow of bunnies using my pattern. How could anyone choose a favourite out of this happy bunch!
This perfect pair of bunnies were made by Elissa in Canada. I love how much personality the boy has with the addition of eyebrows!
This bunny made by Mika in Japan has such a such a soft and gentle personality. I love her!
Jackie in the US made this cute bunny couple. Don't they make such a lovely pair!
It made me smile seeing this bunny that Catherine in the UK made making friends with an elephant! I love how she has used floral fabric for the bunny's body
Last but not least are this group of beautiful rainbow bunnies made by Stephanie in the US. I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them. The heart details on the cheeks and the ears are so creative, and I love that she has embroidered names on their clothes to personalise them. So special!
Before I reveal who Seren has chosen as our first Maker of the Month, I want to thank everyone who shared the bears and bunnies they made with my sewing patterns. I can't begin to tell you how happy it makes me to see them and hear how much you have enjoyed making them!
It took Seren a long time to choose. Every time she saw a new doll she said it was her favourite! But one of the bunnies and one of the bears really stood out, so we've decided to award two Makers of the Month this time.
The first Maker of the Month is Alison from the UK. Seren said "I fell in love with this bunny straight away, she looks so cuddly and cute!"
Luxuria from Mexico is the other Maker of the Month. Seren chose this panda because "The fabrics she used for the clothes really stand out to me and make him look so adorable"
I will be in touch with Alison and Luxuria so they can choose which sewing pattern they would like.
