Meet my new stuffed doll – Mashenka

Today I put to my Box With Pretty Things my new stuffed doll with lovely Russian name Mashenka.

Originally I had an idea to make a doll for a cartoon movie “Mashenka and three bears”. Unfortunately for some reasons we can not transform this idea into the life, but Mashenka was created.

She is young, a bit crazy, very friendly and sociable. She like bright colors and funny people. She always smile and usually makes smile everybody else.

Sorry guys, I can not share pattern with you, simple because I do not have one. I sew Mashenka without any pattern, and this makes my new stuffed doll being very special and unique.
