I first saw these amazing matryoshka-inspired kits from an online craft shop last year, but their website had really confusing delivery settings and I couldn't place an order to have shipped to Austria. So shame about that, they missed out on some good PR by excluding potential customers.

Therefore I was delighted to spot this kit recently from one of my favourite Etsy sellers, JapanLovelyCrafts!! They ship super-efficiently to every country worldwide. This kit is made by Sunfelt and includes pre-cut fabric shapes which are very convenient. The instructions were not always accurate, so I've reworked several steps for this tutorial to show you the best method.

This requires a little bit of patience when sewing because most stitches are visible so they need to be done very neatly, and it will take about 2-4 hours to complete. You can easily use this tutorial to help you make the bear and bunny dolls too.
