Believe me when I say I can create almost any peg doll and anything goes. This peg doll vicar is testimony to that!
We don’t do many craft fayres. Due to the fact that we are lucky to be kept very busy with orders for personalised peg dolls, it can be hard to schedule time to create “stock”. I’m also not a huge fan of mass production. However, when we do attend fayres, they are great for meeting and sharing our work with lovely people, who quite often decide to find out more about placing a bespoke order.
This was one of those cases.
A lady spent time looking at our stall, and then explained that her dad would shortly be retiring from his job, and would I be able to make a peg doll to commemorate this? She was incredibly proud of all that he had done throughout his career, and was hoping that I could recreate his Archdeacon gown. Of course, I was excited by the potential challenge of this!
I loved working with the rich golden colours. Creating the effect of the beautiful embroidered Celtic knot patterns was particularly up my street!
I also had to make Mum to accompany the vicar peg doll. My customer didn’t have any specific clothing pictures to send me. My brief was “a scarf….mustard, navy and maybe some stripes”. It was quite exciting to have free reign over the clothing design, and a refreshing contrast to closely recreating all the important detail on the ceremonial gown.
Who doesn’t like a classic Breton Stripe?!
Is there a unique peg doll I could create for you?
