Outfitted in sweet, matching colors, your trick-or-treaters will have all the grandparents under their charm in cut-and-sew Matryoshka Doll costumes designed by Anda Corrie. You may recognize Anda’s distinct style from other DIY tutorials on the blog or her Spoonflower shop, and her riff on a classic collectible in Basic Cotton Ultra makes an adorable combo for siblings. See Anda’s complete tutorial below to get started!
Russian nesting dolls
We first met embroidery artist and kit designer Michelle Galletta of Kiriki Press while working together on a quick and easy DIY project for attendees of the Create: Now Summit. To say it was love at first stitch would be an understatement! Michelle has the ability to bring fabric to life with her extraordinary embroidery skills and today, we’re so thrilled to welcome Michelle to the blog to share her Matryoskha dolls with the entire Spoonflower community.
Just like the traditional Russian nesting dolls where the artistry is found in the way the dolls’ outfits are decorated, Michelle’s dolls will come to life as you embroider the cut & sew pattern with your own personal spin.
