So, there seems to be a craze for Matryoska dolls, they're everywhere right now so thought I'd jump on the bandwagon too. I thought they looked straight forward enough that even I can do them! This is my first attempt, based on a felt version I think I saw on Etsy a while back (I'll hunt the reference and update). I figure I might do an ATC set too giving them different dress patterns / ribbons / buttons etc. A good project for anyone, like me, who's not that artistic!!!

You can't quite see in the picture but she has little green jewelled eyes to give her a sparkle.
I love the backdrop of the wall too, turning her in to an urban Matryoshka. I need to get more of that card, may be add some grafitti to make it even more 'Street'  Cheesy

She's adorable! I think adding graffiti behind her would be fun, especially if it were Matryoshka related
