Russian Nesting Doll

I have a market to prepare for. Dresses need to be cut, so that I can sew and dye, but I just didn't feel like it last night.

I started out by just doing the embroidery onto felt. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. Then this morning I decided to cut a backing and bottom out of light blue felt. I blanket stitched and stuffed it with wool. Voila! Little nesting doll.

I am thinking making the whole set. Mollie has requested it, but we'll see how time goes.
