Hand Embroidered Robot Matryoshka Doll

My son loves looking through all my craft books when he is hanging out in my sewing room.  There is a small section on crochet, especially how to crochet amigurumi and other fun little toys.    A few days ago, he saw a picture of a crocheted robot matryoshka doll in a book called “Crobots” and fell in love with it.

I don’t know how to crochet – although I plan to learn one day, but agreed to make a “softie” version out of some red scrap fabric.  He wanted his doll to be at least a foot high, which is much larger than the one in the book.  We drew up a pattern for the body and face, and I got to work on stitching it all together.  It turned out pretty close to what was in the book – even down to the special robot antenna on top of her head.

Making this took about 2 hours,  since there is so much hand embroidery on the face and body.  I hope he doesn’t want me to create a full set of stacking dolls for him in the other sizes.

Keep it Thimble!
