Just had to pop in and show off the present I just finished for a friend’s new baby and her son.  Since the Russian dolls pattern came out I had big dreams of creating a double sided doll or a puppet set with dolls inside of dolls but I realized that I needed to get these done and not just plan more and more complicated versions of them so I stitched these up along with some unpink double sided receiving blankets for my friend. 

Many thanks to the craftster projects that came before mine as I got the idea to outline stitch the body from BrookOwens and mamaphunk’s doll which made me realize simple might be the better choice…I didn’t loop the ribbon or add a button because I wanted it to be totally baby safe.  Another nice feature of this project is that I got to use some of my favorite fabrics for the back of these which is always nice because I am not so much a sewer as a fabric collector Wink 

Sadly I forgot to photo the doll flat and the back of the little dog for her son…it always amazes me when I download my photos what remember to photo and then the things I totally overlook Wink

Those are so cute and well-done, what a lucky baby!
How long did it take you to make the Russian doll?

thanks - I'm kind of sketchy when it comes to time to sew it up and stuff and hand sew the bottom took maybe and hour and half but the embroidery for me always involves a lot of deliberation so I spent probably 3 or 4 evenings stitching and looking at it and then adding to it.
