Matryoshka craft roundup

By Christy Amular - December 28, 2008

Matryoshkas along with owls, birdies and little red riding hood are big craft themes this year. They're everywhere as fabric surface design, soft toys, printed goods and novelty items.

My friend Cathy shared this photo of her hubby's matryoshka chess set. So cute, isn't it? I haven't seen anything quite like it before.

Here's a year end round up of the best matryoshka craft inspiration:
