Babushka Doll

I've been wanting to make this Babushka doll for a while and tonight I started my first one. I have another 4 to go. I made this one using fabric from Tone Finnanger's TILDA collection. 

I found that the pattern (by Ooshka) was difficult to read as it was written in centimeters and not inches - most patchwork mats, rules etc are in inches - and also a lot of unnecessary pre-cutting of fabric, rather than just sew 4 strips together in correct width/length. The end result was the same, but I think the pattern should be re-written for the AU/USA market personally.
