These precious Russian Matryoshka dolls are very easy to make. Your favorite little girl will love carrying these sweet dolls around. They are perfect for little hands to hold. There aren't any attached embellishments (if you eliminate the ribbons) which make them safe for babies (although, babies should always be watched carefully with toys). The sample dolls are made using a sewing machine but they can be made entirely by hand using running stitches to assemble them and blanket stitch embroidery around the faces. Cotton fabrics were used for sample dolls. It will be fun to make the dolls from holiday fabrics for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. This eight page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns to make the dolls in four sizes, a materials list, detailed instructions written in English and clear step-by-step photographs.
