LITTLE MISS MATROYSHKA ....
A couple of Thanksgivings back, I made her the big one of this set (Yes, I know I'm slow!!!). This is the medium sized one. The baby one will follow:-)
The pattern came from a UK publication I bought a couple of years back. It was a special Christmas edition. It is full of cute, easy and practical ideas - none of which take a huge chunk of time (or supplies) to make.
Have you seen those mini balls of yarn you can buy now? They're made by Lionbrand, and are called Bon Bon's .............. they are so much fun !!! I used a pack of those to make her (I still have enough yarn left over to probably make her over again). There are 8 balls in each packet, and they're available in different colorways and yarn weights ............ I'll let you into a secret -Shhh - I have them all :-) They're ideal for those small projects, where you only need a few yards of yarn ..... love them (it's all to do with the fact that they're the perfect, tiny, little ball :-)
Wishing y'all a very Happy Thanksgiving !!!
