Janelle loves Babushka dolls and I love the Rose bags she makes - we had the makings of a fun swap. I decided a handmade card featuring one of her beloved dolls would fit the bill.
Janelle also mentioned that she likes selvedges. Yep. A girl after my own heart. ;o) It seemed to me that I needed (you know me and my penchant for bag making) to make a bag to put the Babushka dolls into and this is what I came up with...
a fun way to use those selvedges!
The bag is quilted,
trimmed with self-made piping and lined with Kaffe Fassett fabric. * The design for this bag is from Denise Clason's book, Quilted Bags and Totes. *
Here are the Babushka girls I made for Janelle in 'shabby chic' colours,
