Another Christmas project is starting to take shape. Whenever I am working on my projects Cupcake Princess avidly follows the progress and gets out her paper & pencil to come up with her own designs. Whilst I was working on finishing off the gingerbread angel she was sketching a picture of a very pretty Russian doll with a pocketful of baby Russian dolls.
As usual the potential item was going to be a stuffed Russian doll for her with lots of stuffed baby dolls but I managed to convince her that stuffed dolls was a bit beyond my ‘winging it’ skills…and I have already made her a Russian doll doll this year. Following a lot of discussion we agreed that we would make an applique Russian doll. An hour of fabric selection, tracing and fusing later and we were off.
This evening I have sewn a face onto the doll and she is finished…….
Now we have two questions – 1) What should we call her? 2) What do we make with her? Cupcake Princess’s initial ideas are Holly and a wall hanging for her bedroom.
Cupcake Princess has already been working on ideas for another Christmas wall hanging/quilt – I really must stop letting her looking at pictures on Flickr with me…it gives her too many ideas.
