I didn't have the colours to make the little mermaid that was on the cover (I'm still itching to make it), so I made this little matryoshka instead (their samples are on the top right of that same magazine cover):
Quickie camera photo but you get the idea - not too bad for materials on hand, if I do say so myself. Here's a little gallery of some other interpretations of matryoshkas
That was fun. I think I'll be making more felt-y items. And I learned that I am much better at the blanket stitch (the stitch that runs around the outside) than I thought I was. That's a very good thing.
