Felt Russian Fairy Tale: Creating a Sweet Spring DIY Doll
There are many fairy-tales in Russian folk tradition. And I thought, maybe they is one about matreshka?
The tale is short in telling, but the deed is long in doing. So, let's make a felt fairy-tale doll. Although I'm an experienced puppet-maker, but made such doll... for the first time.
So, you need:
1. Fabric for the base.
3. Coloured felt.
5. Beads of different colours.
6. Threads for embroidery.
8. Sewing machine.
9. Needle for sewing and beading.
And certainly a very large stock of patience.
First you need to make the base from the following pattern. To do this, cut out four wedges, sew them together leaving the bottom open, turn outside in, stuff and pull the bottom with the thread.
