Handmade Teapot Cover

This teapot cover was ordered by Zarina, a girl who likes tea very much. She wanted both to keep the warmth of her favourite drink and to decorate the kitchen with a doll. And she made up her mind that the ideal solution would be to make a teapot that looks like a doll. I suggested that the prototype of the doll would be the heroine of the "Merchant's Wife" picture by Boris Kustodiev. Zarina liked the idea very much because, as it turned out, she liked the pictures created by this painter.
Some "technical details":
The warmth is saved by means of the skirt made from wadding.
Also, it is the first doll sewed by me that has a breast (What a merchant's wife it is if she hasn't got a breast?! Everybody who is familiar with the creations of Boris Kustodiev knows that all his models were rather plump)
