nesting dolls


Things that nest are so pleasing to me and this set of dolls fits neatly inside each other. The dolls are sturdy and stand well on their own. Leave them plain or decorate their bellies with embroidery.

For best results, felt the dolls until no visible stitches remain. To be sure the yarn you are using felts, make a test swatch and felt it thoroughly.
