Russian Dolls

I hope you are all enjoying the Easter Weekend and your time with family.

I have just popped in to share two cards with you.
I received this pattern when I completed a questionnaire over at Stitching Cards and it just sat around for quiet a long time untouched. However I have now made it up, not once but twice (or actually four times if you count each individual doll).
It turned out very well.

Here is the first one I made

I then saw this over at Life is what you make it.

and was inspired to make this one

I reduced the pattern to 50%. It was a bit fiddly and the holes where quite close together so I did have to reinforce them with some washi tape but I am very happy with the end result.
