Russian Doll

I have had an obsession with Russian Dolls since I was a little girl, my gran used to collect them and promised me that I would inherit them. Sadly I didn't and I have no idea what happened to them. Ever since I have been attracted to them, and anything with the Russian doll pattern, which seems to be around at the moment. Anyway, I have been wanting to try this out and it worked pretty good, i made the pattern myself and its made from felt and some bits and pieces I had lying around such as buttons and small fabric flowers! I think its pretty cute!

Bird Camera Cosy

Yummy Pin cushion

I made this cake pincushion for my friend Katy for her birthday as she is studing for a MA in Textiles @ Chelsea College of Art and Design, so I thought it might come in handy for those sewing projects!

Its made out of felt and ribbon, with small beads for the topping of 'hundreds and thousands'... yummy

I think I may make one for myself now!
