I was recently asked to create an Ice Hockey Peg doll for a teams’ biggest little fan!
Lola was about to turn 9, and had recently got into watching the Cardiff Devils play. Her mum got in touch to ask if it would be possible to make a personalised peg doll of her wearing their jersey.
Mr T and I started to go and watch The Devils ourselves last year, so I know how totally addictive live matches and cheering The Devils on is! I of course jumped at the chance to make a special ice hockey peg doll for her!
Needless to say, I LOVED working the tiny logo details on to the ice hockey peg doll! And for once – I remembered to take in-progress pictures to share!
I drew the outlines of the logo first, to make sure I got them just right and fit them into the tiny area on the dolls tummy. The tip of my finger here helps give some perspective into how small the work was.
Another peg doll commission that was completely up my street!
Lola’s and her Mum loved the finished peg doll! Mum left a lovely review on my facebook page which is always so lovely to read! The Cardiff Devils definitely have an awesome new little fan cheering them on from the stands!
Would you like your own Ice Hockey Peg Doll? Or maybe it’s another sport which gets you rooting and cheering from the side lines!
