Minature Grumpy Babushka Doll

With many jobs needing to be done, I decided to put housework aside and make a mini Babushka style doll using my grumpy girl  as inspiration! Can you believe it was almost 5 years ago that grumpy girl came into being?

As you can see from the above photo, she really is very small and I had to sit by the light of the window to make the tiny stitches.

I embroidered her face freehand and my goodness hasn't she got the grumps? She is quite lovable really though and I enjoyed bringing her to life!


  1. Despite being grumpy, she is very cute! :)

  3. Oh, my - she is a crosspatch, ha, ha! Is she like a worry doll? X

  4. Hi Vintage Tea Time! I guess she is a sort of a worry doll although I have now made dolls with happy faces and they are lucky mascots!

  5. She is grumpy! I too wondered if she was a 'worry' doll:)
