When my lovely Instagram and creativepreneur friend Sharon asked if I could create her a set of personalised peg dolls I jumped at the chance!
Tucked away on the beautiful coast high up in Scotland, Sharon creates beautiful needle-felted art and pin badges as Ria Melin. You can see her gorgeous work in her Etsy shop here. As always, it was an honour to be asked to make something for a fellow creative soul.
The set I created for her consists of herself and her partner, her parents and her gorgeous Shitzu Zelda.
One of Sharon’s most infamous products are her Highland Cow pins, and I paid a little tribute to this with a teeny little cow on her cardigan.
Sharon sent pictures of her favourite pink top and orange cardigan for herself, but left it up to me to decide what to create on her mum’s doll. The reference photos for her Mum’s clothing included stripes and pink. So I combined the two and opted for pink stripes, tying the two ladies together nicely and reflecting the bond and love they share.
All in all, the family’s clothes were quite plain pattern-wise. Nevertheless the bright, vivid colours worked really well despite this. As a result, this demonstrates that despite my mantra when you order being “patterns work best”, the peg dolls look lovely what ever your style.
The bold blue and pink colours repeated through the dolls helped tie them together as a set.
It’s no secret that I’m a cat person, and at any time my clothing consists of approximately 85% cat hair. However, Zelda is the dog that could convert me to being a dog person! She is THE CUTEST little dog I have ever seen. Look at her adorable little face! Such a sweetheart. It was a pleasure to create her little wooden personalised peg doll twin!
