Matryoshka Love

There is no doubt about it. I simply love these types of little dolls.

These are some I made last year out of felt.

I hand embroidered the design in burgundy on an ivory background.

I had originally done the design to make some Matryoshka dolls to put up in my Etsy shop, but they never actually made it there. I still have plans to do so, just not sure when.

These are actually much smaller versions made into an ornament.

I really had a lot of fun making these. I have thought about putting together a pattern for them because they are so much fun to make and are also a nice addition to the tree. Or anywhere really you would want to place them. Who says ornaments can only be out during the holidays?
