meet the lovely matryoshka inspired ladies

Confession: The beautiful Kokka (Japanese) fabric used to make these ladies sat in the "good intentions" pile for almost a full five years. A little editing of my fabric stash brought them top of mind and to the top of the pile. Since I have been feeling particularly "crafty" these days - I added a little embroidery, some vintage inspired patterns on the back, and a special bit of authentically vintage rick rack for the hangers. BAM! And now I regret not investing in more yardage...

Colourful, hand-embroidered ladies with an obvious nod to Russian matryoshka dolls (minus the complicated inner dialogue of layered personalities).
