Make a cute crochet Matryoshka Hanging Doll
This Matryoshka doll is constructed of two identical crochet pieces and single crocheted together.
Each piece is worked forwards and backwards in rows.
I use US terms, so single crochet is the same as UK double crochet here.

Choose one of your pieces of crochet and ensure that the tail from the beginning chain is hanging to the bottom right.
Cut a circle of felt for the face (I found a spice jar lid to be the perfect template) and cut hair and cheek shapes. Use PVA glue to stick the pieces together and to stick the face onto your crochet.
I added the eyes using a fabric marker pen (the one I use to label the kid's school uniforms).
Now cut the shape for the skirt using pinking shears. You could stick this onto the crochet, or like me, you could stitch it on. Up to you.
Let the glue dry.
Put the two pieces of crochet together so that both the tails from your starting chain hang down at the right side. This means that the stitches will match exactly and make life easier when crocheting together.
Now use your stitching colour and single crochet around both pieces to join together. Make sure you work in anti-clockwise direction so your stitches face forwards.
Before you completely close, stuff with toy stuffing. Add a few drops of essential oil if you'd like yours to be scented.
Sew in the remaining ends and then complete your stitching and fasten off.
Attach a ribbon to the back and hang where everyone can admire your fabulousness.
