Every commission for a set of personalised peg dolls that I receive is an honour. I love what I do, and it is still always a bit astounding that other people love them enough too to want to own a set for themselves.
So you can imagine how pleased I was to be asked to make a family set of dolls for one of my oldest and dearest friends. This set of Personalised peg dolls really was “personal”!
Of course, this added a new level of pressure above that which I usually feel when working on a commission to get them just right!
My lovely friend made no hesitation in sending me the loveliest outfits for me to work on! Her pictures were perfect; lots of bright colours and fun patterns to recreate.
I was totally spoilt with the ladies’ dresses! It was certainly a challenge to capture the spirit of the chirpy owls on this popular British designers’ dress on such a teeny scale, but it was a lot of fun to do! I also loved the gorgeous geometric patterns of the dress on the right. I am easily pleased; projects involving colour and geometric patterns is all it takes!
Let’s not forget about this gorgeous little guy! How fun is his dinosaur jumper? I loved recreating the little Jurassic creatures on the tiny 6cm peg doll.
His Dad’s t-shirt was a good one too! I loved creating the wave logo and blending the reds, oranges and yellows together. Really distinctive motifs like these always work really well to make your peg dolls instantly recognisable to your recipient.
A gorgeous set of family peg dolls for a truly special and gorgeous family ♥
