Birthday Surprise...shhhhh!


June is birthday month for my oldest daughter. When she was helping me surf the Sew, Mama, Sew giveaways last month, she saw a Matroyshka doll that she fell in love with. We didn't win that giveaway, but I didn't forget! :)

This little sweetie was made with a pattern from one of my most favorite pattern companies, Whimsy Couture. It was so super easy to follow that I had her together in less than an hour!

Her little eyes and mouth are hand-stitched, and do you recognize that sweet flower button embellishment? Yep, that's one of those amazing hand-crafted Incomparable Buttons I won! It was the perfect accent for this sweet doll and matched the fabrics I used like I had planned it. Love that!

Sure to be making more of these in the future!

this Little Doll is so cute. Would be a great little project for a Church Women's Group for mission Project to make to give to their local Foster Home Agency for Kids for the coming Holidays.... or to Police dept. to give out when they have to Respond to Child Endangerment calls...Fire Dept. to give to Rescued children... They could be made to look like boys too...

They would be perfect for that Jean! Thanks for your sweet and thoughtful comment! :)
