Matryoshka doll is a level three embroidery kit. Most of the fabric will be covered with stitches.
Kiriki is a Canadian independent design company making handcrafted modern embroidery samplers and kits. All their kit designs are screen printed onto the fabric, so no tracing or transferring is needed. Thread the needle & go right to learning and stitching!
The kit contains everything you need to make this 4 1/2" stuffie, threads, a needle, and even the stuffing! All you need is a small embroidery hoop and scissors. The cotton fabric is printed for both the front and the back of the stuffie, and there are good instructions for how to make the embroidery stitches you will need. You do the embroidery stitching, then cut out and sew together and stuff.
There are many different Kiriki stuffy animals to choose from in 3 stitching levels. 1 is good for beginners, 2 intermediate, and the level three kits are more complex stitching.
I can say from experience that toddlers love these stuffie animals and will carry them around firmly clutched in their little hands. I think it's the small size that appeals to them so much. But if you don't have any small children for an excuse to make one, stitch one anyway. They are a satisfying project :-)
