Happy Matryoshka!

 Yesterday I had so much fun playing with Annaboo's House new pattern! A cute little matryoshka! I love Russian nesting dolls (it's probably all the Russian blood in me) they are just so happy and cute!


The pattern is super simple and clearly written out. The only changes I made was I stitched the hair and face onto the crochet piece for extra stability, tied a piece of ribbon around her neck for the bow, and added blush with a pink crayon. If anyone is curious the fabric is from Bonnie and Camille's Ruby ling. I'm already working on a few more, these will be so adorable on a Christmas tree!


She's currently happily living on the kitchen cabinet door!

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!

  1. Aww, so cute! I love your little matroyshka doll. My daughter always loved those little nesting dolls, so it was amusing to me when I found out that she was dating a young man from Russia. Now, two years later, I am wondering if this is the fellow who will be our son in law someday??
