The lovely Anita passed on this link to me for a free pattern and tutorial to make a Babushka doll. Just click HERE to go to a blog called Sew, Cook, Laugh & Live for the pattern and tutorial. I made this for my daughter's friend as part of her birthday present a couple of weeks ago. It's a very simple pattern and is great to use up some fabric/ribbon/trimming scraps from your stash - and I certainly have ALOT of those!
Also - an update on the 'Chick-sicle' on my last post - it works REALLY WELL! I have started doing Family Day Care over the last couple of months and the children in my care have used it and also my own kids have used this very 'Cool Chick'. It gets the thumbs up from them - as it is cool and soft on their bumps & bruises and comforting to hold and cuddle. So a great idea - thanks to Suzanne for her free pattern and tutorial.
Happy Sewing everyone!
