Handmade Matryoshka Type Doll and Bag

While at the cottage on vacation recently I brought materials to work on projects.  I made a Matryoshka looking little doll (but not nesting)  from felt and embellished with little beads for my granddaughter Madeline.









I wanted something for her to carry it in or hang in her bedroom.  I pulled out my felt and started cutting...
sewing and embellishing with beads...
a little bag with lace and pearl trim and shoulder strap....pink and purple her favourite colours...
Then I made a little one that can stand on her own and can be a finger puppet...
here they both are...
On Thursday Geoff and Madeline came to my work and we had a picnic lunch outdoors that I had made.
 I gave the bag and dolls to her and she thought they were cute.  It was a fun project and fun picnic. 

I love this picture.... Judi xoxo
