In the series of articles devoted to the theme of Russian dolls, here is how to use one of these charming figurines to make it a useful and friendly object by transforming it into a pretty little purse.
This topic will be the subject of 2 publications, that of today devoted to embroidery and that of next week to the assembly of the doll.
The drawing necessary for the realization of the scholarship can be downloaded HERE.
Here are the colors that I used
House of Embroidery stranded cotton Apple 67C Apple
DMC stranded cotton 151, 3804, 3806, 728, 702, 703 et 772
House of Embroidery 4mm silk ribbon Lavender 34
The front side of this doll is embroidered in the same way as Sofia’s. Here then are the explanations of the realization of the back of the figurine and particularly the weaving of the scarf and the braid.
