Matryoshka Tilda Dolls

As I promised in my previous blog post about the Mlyn handmade fare, I'm starting to expose those dolls here, at my virtual stand :)
I decided to start by exposing my Matryoshka (aslo known as Russian dolls or Babushka dolls) Tilda dolls.
I crafted them easily, in a burst of inspiration. I liked them. They are the first but I can say for sure that they are not the last ones you'll see.
So here they are:

Dear Julia, my name is Kiki. I am from the Netherlands. I love your work. I especially love your Matroeska dolls. My daughter has a matroeska theme in her room, she is 3 years old. My other daughter who is 5 would love your dolls. I am going to buy a tilda book myself and give it a try.

Julia said...

Thank you, Kiki. I'm pleased you liked my dolls )
By the way, my daughters are the same age as yours (5 and 2.8). If you've got any questions on making dolls, I'll be glad to help you.

Kiki said...

Thank you very much for your reply. What is the tittle of the Tilda book in which I can find the pattern for the matroeska doll?

Julia said...

Hi Kiki,
Actually I found the patterns for the matryoshka dolls in the internet... As far as I know, "The Tilda Characters Collection" book by Tone Finnanger (the creator of the Tilda style) contains some Matryoshka patterns

Julia said...

one more book that contains Matryoushka patters: "Tildas julehus" by Tone Finnanger (but unfortunately I didn't find it on amazon)

Your dolls are lovely! Could you share the weblink where you found the pattern? Thank you!

Julia said...
