Special Little Ladies

I've really been looking forward to being able to show you these little ladies who were stitched in December for a very special new arrival, but I waited until the gift was delivered before the big reveal.

I just loved the opportunity to stitch up these little Russian dolls from Aimee Ray's great Doodle Stitching book.   I think they are the perfect stitch design for this project and I was so glad to find Aimee Ray had included them in her book, as my efforts to draw these freehand would have made for much less successful embroidery!

I did consider making a cushion panel from the stitchery, but as the stitching progressed, I thought it would be fun to turn them into a bright and cheery wallhanging fit for the nursery of a treasured first daughter.  So a little bit of England Swings by Rebekah Merkle and a few heart buttons and cuteness reigns.  Although this cuteness is absolutlely no match for the cuteness of its adorable new owner, I promise you!

And, just as a wee extra I passed on two little taggy comforters like these as well - one to cuddle while one is in the wash!

I may have relished making these baby girl pressies rather a lot!


  1. Wow, I absolutely love these baboushka's. ( Not sure if that is the right spelling).
    What a lovely gift for a first born. Well done.

  2. Oh love the wall hanging and those taggies are great

  3. Sarah, I love your embroidered wall hanging, great colours, I would put it on my wall

  4. Lovely gift and those tagged are great - going to add them to my list of baby sewing. Are they just backed with regular fabric and is there anything the middle?

  5. Sewing and stitching lovely things in pink! I hope that you enjoyed the girlieness! Great makes. Di x

  6. That wall hanging is adorable! T will love it! Jxo

  7. The embroidery is gorgeous!

  8. I love the embroidery, I bet her book is filled with great stitcheries! Your work looks perfect!
