Found my problem was related to the threading. Yeah. Easy fix. So I continue on the quest to make a little matrishka (sp?) doll. It was fun, but my machine sewing leaves a lot to be desired. My favorite parts as usual are the embroidered ones. Her hair is cool. I just followed the picture in my Homemaker Magazine. I never found find any templates.
Her lower half is weird, but I love her none-the-less!!! The flower was fun to make too!
