*Linen Bubuskas*

So, I had this idea. Fabric dolls made in the shape of Russian Babushkas (Matryoshkas, stacking dolls, nesting dolls, etc) I had some linen left over from that petticoat I made and these little figures are my first attempt. As always, the first project is like the first pancake....it might come out weird, hopefully not burnt, but it's still, over all, ok. I think I'll try a little different shape and different method of bottom, but over all, I like them. What do you think? Should I have ladies like these in the shop in the future?
