Babushka doll purse for Kristen

P2210005, originally uploaded by sarah-may.

Kristen and I both love Russian nesting dolls. Kristen gave us a set of Babushka measuring cups for the kitchen for our wedding. It was her birthday last week and I felt inspired to carry on the babushka tradition and made her a little felt purse. I drew the illustration on the computer, printed it out and used it as a pattern. The eyes and cheeks are created with Copic markers but the rest is layered felt. I was aiming for a less traditional doll but it came out super traditional, oh well! Next time, maybe a glam metal doll? I hope she likes it!
