PLEASE NOTE: This is the A4 Version of my pattern, if you would prefer the Letter size version for your printer please find it in my other pattern listings. Both versions have the measurements in centimeters and inches.
This Babushka is perfect for showing off how clever you are at using up your treasured patchworking scraps (or the ones you pinched from your mum!). For that reason, it's also good for justifying your hoarding nature to your husband! It's also really good for using those Fat 1/8s of fabric that you 'just had to get a piece of' while paroosing your favorite fabric shop or website!
There is a bit of hand-sewing involved, and it can be quite good as an appliqu and embroidery sample for you if you're just starting to sew.
When I'm not looking after my rambunctious 2 year old, I'm teaching sewing and art at Collage so I have written this pattern to teach you new skills if you are a beginner that you can go on to use in other projects. Clear illustrations for each step make it easy for visual learners or more advanced crafters to zoom through. The illustrations also help greatly if English is not your first language.
This pattern is subject to copyright. I am happy for you to make toys for yourself, family, friends and even sell some of the toys you make so long as you make them by hand...dolls need souls and factories forget to insert them. I also give permission for all teachers to print out the pattern pieces for the purpose of teaching their students sewing skills in a classroom environment.
Love and happy crafting from Pinky Wittingslow xoxox
