I completed my first commission!

They took so long to make because I had to figure out the pattern for the medium and small babushkas as I was crocheting them and I kept making mistakes. Also, I was halfway through making the large blue one when I found out that I had been using a crochet hook one size too small. These are the tags that went with them:

Lovely job on these toys! You captured the spirit of the original dolls quite well. As a Russian, however, I feel compelled to make a small correction: these dolls are called "matryoshka" dolls. ("Babushka" means "grandmother" in Russian.) Whatever name you give them, however, I am sure the recipient was pleased to get them!

Thanks for letting me know! I'll be sure to correct this in the future.
