matryoshka sewing kit!


i cannot resist russian doll sets
and went really crazy buying them
like they were going out of fashion a year or so ago
i have sold a few sets in my Etsy shops
but i also have quite a few sets who have sadly lost members of their families
:o(


poor Mama here has lost her littlest baby,
her other daughters are growing up and getting underfoot
what they all need is a vocation in life . . . .


Mama gets to be pin-cushion

big sister the spool keeper and
little sister is in charge of buttons!



no matryoshka were hurt to create this set and
they are very simply reverted to a stacking doll set



Mama and her girls are heading off to Etsy
to find a new craft room to live in
:o)

There are soooo many clever things to do with nesting dolls... I like that you included pictures and a mini story to show off your crafty side!
