Matryoshka Dolls

What started with a Spring Matryoshka Doll swap, ended up with numerous Matryoshka babies being born!!
This first one is what I made for the swap. It is "Happy Spring" and is supposed to be a flower!
As always, I cannot make just one! This is the result of an afternoon of Matryoshka Doll making! I had to make my own pattern, as I couldn't find one I liked!
These two are "Cupcake Matryoshka Dolls". I had been holding onto this fabric and decided to use it on two of the dolls.
This doll is in honor of the new "Alice in Wonderland" movie! It is Alice & Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum! I love how this one turned out!!


  1. So cute ! So this is what sewn Matryoshkas look like ! Thanks, lulubiz (swap-bot)

  2. So, I love your Russian dolls! They are tres cute. I also enjoy crocheting, but I haven't got to make a doll, just simple stuff.-skylover
