Matryoshka Doll

Create Your Own

This is my latest completed project, matryoshka dolls! They turned out so sweet! I got the pattern from Maisy Hutton's site and you can get it here too! It's a pdf that she has generously made available to all who want to try it!

I made mine completely from felt. I just love working with felt! It's so forgiving and you can do just about anything with it. I prefer to use a wool felt blend as I just hate the craft felt! I have a bunch of it from before I became a felt snob. It makes a great material for my 7yr old Daughter to play with - and I don't care what she does with it!!

There are lots of great places to buy felt from online. I just happen to buy from Wool Felt Central. I was very happy with their speed and service.

I also love to do little embroidery projects so these little darlings satisfied me on two fronts! There are lots of ideas out there (online) for ways to embellish if you need some inspiration. Just google the dolls and hit images!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I really like these little dolls, I have been trying to find wool felt in pretty colors. I have a vintage pattern for booties made from wool felt. Is it soft?
