Felt Matryoshka pattern


 Well, my patchwork life continues...
my week resembles a patchwork quilt with no one thing occupying my work...
a little bit of work here, a little bit of work there...
I am planning some craft sessions in a family centre one of which will be to make little felt badges, brooches and corsages.
Over the weekend I have been cutting and snipping felt to make some samples/design for people to have a go at.
Nothing new but just little projects to get people sewing and making things.
There is something so satisfying about working with felt. It produces a little object of just the right sort of weight.

I came up with this little matryoshka doll. there is something really satisfying about the simplicity of a matryoshka doll.
These are the pieces I used if you fancied having a go. It would make a nice little brooch for a denim jacket or a motif for the front of a needle case.
I am wondering about stringing them up as a sort of Christmas garland but I am not telling you which christmas that will be!
Print out the picture and use it as a template for cutting your felt.

the babushka's are adorable! I love sewing with felt too, maybe because it reminds me of sewing as a child. They would make fab Christmas bunting too!
