June was packed full of photos of cute dolls made with my animal doll sewing patterns! I'm honestly blown away by the talent and creativity within our community
Seeing your photos each day makes me so happy. I love sharing them in my Instagram stories and spreading the joy that they bring. I save the photos in the highlight folders on my Instagram page. You can’t help but smile when you look through them. It’s so inspiring!
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. She picks one photo as her Maker of the Month. The lucky winner receives a sewing pattern of their choice from my website

Maker of the Month
Seren found it difficult to choose just a few favourites to share, never mind choosing a maker of the month! But in the end the bright colours that Victoria used for her bears and their matching outfits really stole Seren's heart!
She said: "They are the perfect couple! I really like the dress and how the boy bear has a matching tie. They look adorable"
I will get in touch with Victoria so she can choose a free pattern! Congratulations Victoria!
