Matryoshka

6 comments
I have been wanting to make this tea cozy to put over a teapot on a shelf in my sewing room for a while now but I didn't have a pattern, just an idea.
I bought a pattern for matryoshka dolls from Aimee Ray at her etsy shop. I adapted it and made it bigger so I could use her basic pattern to come up with my own version of a matryoshka tea cozy. This weekend I got it mostly done.
Mine is definately not the same face. Thats where I ran into trouble. I think I need to make the eyes bigger. I'll work on it a little. I have to cut out a back for her and hem her, too. It was fun do something different. I'm definately not a doll maker but its not too bad for a first attempt. - nanette
