If you are looking for inspiration to make one of my animal doll sewing patterns, look no further! More people than ever were kind enough to share photos of their beautiful dolls made using my patterns in August. It was wonderful seeing so many bears, bunnies, dogs and cats being made all over the world.
Each month I collate all of the photos that you share of the dolls 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 chose for August!
