Make your own Matroyshka Doll!

Matryoshka - nesting doll is the most famous Russian souvenir, which is popular with everyone, it is considered to be a phenomenon in the world culture. Here we represent matryoshkas made in different parts of Russia and also Russian traditional dolls which can tell you a lot about our history, customs and culture http://www.stpetersburger.com/html/matryoshkas.html
Matroyshka (pronounced "Matrushka") are Russian nesting dolls. The traditional version of these dolls are made out of wood and nest inside each other. They celebrate mamas & her babies!
Maize Hutton made her own version from felt. These are super simple to stitch up. Be creative! Add hair, beads, sequins, glitter, whatever! You can even enlarge the pattern if you wish to make your dolls bigger. http://maizehutton.blogspot.com/2007/01/matryoshka-doll-for-you.html
