Matryoshka Swap Lovelies Made by me.

My partner for the Martyoshka swap on Craftster recieved her package so I can post pics of what I made for her.
First up a felt door hanger with applique on front. I used this tutorial. And it was my first time sewing ricrac onto something and I have to tell you, it was so much easier than I thought it would be. I am really happy with how it turned out.

Next up earrings. The pic is a bit dark. They are really bright purple. I think I need to make myself some.

Necklace with Matryoshka bead. I also sent her two of the same bead but in red.

And the apron. It turned out so well. I am so happy with this and think that this might just be my Christmas present to all my chickies this year.

And a close up.

As always I stressed and stressed and stressed but in the end was happy with what I made.  I always seem to do that... I worry if I've done enough, or is it to my partner's taste, etc. But thankfully she loved everything.


  1. I love all the Matryoshka lovelies you made. That apron is adorable. That little matryoshka doll is such a cute motif for crafting.

  2. Wow! Amazing! Want to do a personal swap sometime soon;)

  3. What a clever chickie you are. The apron is my fav.

  4. Lovely, lovely - and all mine.

    Thanks, Mel. You're a wonderful partner.

  5. Nice apron Mel. I love it. Where did you get matroyshka fabric? Lila loves them so it would be nice to get some for her.
    You are super clever!
