More Russian Dolls and a New Bag...Plus a little giveaway!

Remember the Matroyshka doll that did for the quick and easy tutorial last month?   I've now made more of these and I found some fabric that had slighter smaller dolls on it too!


These have turned out to be really cute and they are super quick and easy!  I put one of each size into a little bag with a pocket on the front.  Absolutely gorgeous!   If you make any of these I'd be thrilled if you added them to the flickr group so I (and others) can see them.
I'm giving away the makings for one large doll and the little bag.  This means you will get the doll, fabric and ribbon cut and ready to sew.  To win just leave a comment. I'll draw the winner on St. Valentine's day (Monday 14th Feb)


I also made this great bag.  It's called a Baguette bag and is available as a kit from Lisa Lam U-Handbag.
Not only does it look good but it went together like a dream and it's like the Tardis with loads of room inside!

Lovely little Russian dolls remind me of my childhood and gift shops in Cyprus where there is a growing Russian community.
