Felted Matryoshkas



Oh, what fun! I participated in my first natural material craft swap. I made 15 sweet little matryoshkas, inspired by Vivi's 8th birthday theme. I think that I made about a dozen for party favors, and it was such fun that I kept on making them! First, I needle-felted the features, then I wet-felted so that they would be very sturdy for child's play.

Oh my goodness...they're beautiful! I have to say I'm not much for felting yet, I keep hoping it'll grow on me, but I LOVE admiring all the pretty possibilities! I think these are my favourites!

We were so lucky to get one of these. We got the one with the yellow handkerchief and orange dress. It is so lovely. I haven't tried needle/ wet felting yet. Very inspiring.
