Matryoshka Ornaments

Well, the Making of Matryoshkas has begun. These will be the "giveaway" gifts for my close friends at Christmas. The first one is for my good friend whose favorite color is pink. (So many people like pink! Did you know there's a list for pink-loving Christmas crafters?) I drew the face on paper using a combination of pen and chalk, scanned it in and printed it onto fabric you can put into your printer. I like the soft effect of the chalk on the hair and cheeks. I'm trying to make one in everyone's favorite color. But I think one of my girlfriend's favorite colors is orange, and I really don't like orange, so I have no orange fabric...hmmm we'll have to see what I can do about that.... It's really fun to mix and match fabrics and I so enjoy the embellishing with flowers and beads!

Happy Christmas Crafting,
Lin Moon

I don't care for orange either, so when I have to use it, I add a touch of pink - not quite "peach" but relief from the garish orange. I love these things you're doing - reminds me of the nesting wooden dolls my DIL's father used to bring from Russia. I have a set of them.
