I love matryoshka dolls. Even though I now realize I've been mispronouncing the name for an embarrassing amount of time. Don't you hate those moments? Ma-TROshka. Not Ma-tree-oh-shka. sigh.
Anyhoo, I have several sets but my favorite one is from our trip to Sitka, AK. She is done all up in most unusual colors, all my favorites: apple greens, oranges and blues. It makes me happy to look at her and all her babies lined up in a row.
Whilst meandering around the internet, I found two unusual takes on the matryoshka doll I'd like to try, one is a set made entirely of paper at Canon's Creative Park that you can download and print on your inkjet, and another is a sweet and simple free pattern by Maize Hutton for making a set from felt.
