Finished Product!!

Recently my gorgeous sister in law Yolande was here in Aus, she is a crafty person just like me! We were inspired to make some babushka type dolls during the time she was here. Esther, my daughter, put her thoughts in as to the fact that they had to fit inside each other being babushkas and if they didnt then that just wasn't right! So I came up with this cute pattern and have been really lucky to have lots of Jodies left over bits of tablecloth edges and old doilies etc to use on them.

These are all made from recycled, upcycled, gifted, or thrifted fabrics, doilies and bits and pieces, very eco friendly!!

I have made them for the craft stall Jodie & I are having.

Happy Faces Everywhere!

And they don't belong to my kids! Unfortunately my 2 boys have come down with an extremely nasty flu this week and I have been at house bound BUT on the upside it has given me an opportunity to do some much needed sewing. Jodie and I are having a craft stall in October, it is going to be so much fun. Have a look here at some of the lovelies that Jodie is making.

I am making some very special dolls, my own design and here is a look at the faces I have been stitching. Such happy little, rosy cheeked cherubs!

Stay tuned for a look at the finished product.
