Russian Dolls

Yesterday morning I got a flash of inspiration while in the shower and ended up neglecting the owl army in favour of these russian dolls, which I have spent most of my waking hours since working on.

The small ones are brooches!

The big one on the far right in the above photo is made out of felt, lace and denim. I am really short, so every time I buy a new pair of jeans I have to take them up and over the years I have ended up with a fair bit of spare denim. I thought I would try putting it to good use for once! I have never sewed using denim before and it was quite tough, but after battling with it for a while I am quite pleased with how it turned out.

Hope you all have a good weekend!
