You might remember this lovely pair of peg dolls I made a few years back if you have a great memory! If – like me – you can’t remember what day it is, here’s a link back to the post where I first shared them.
The peg dolls were a retirement gift from a daughter to her father to commemorate his career and all the admirable work he had done over those years.
Both her dad and her mum loved them, and it wasn’t too long until she got in touch asking if I could make all the grandchildren to add to the set. Of course!
Here they are, all six of them!
Four lovely girls in a mixture of pretty patterns. Florals and stripes, always a favourite of mine!
Not forgetting the handsome boys in their gear! Check out that splattered dotty little shirt! So cute!
The grandchildren dolls were handed over to their Grandparents, and were very much loved immediately. So much so, that Granddad declared he needed dolls of his own children too, to complete the family.
My lovely customer got in touch to see if I could extend the family set again, this time with her and her brother and sister!
By now she knew my love of working with patterns and colour, and sent me pictures of outfits that didn’t disappoint!
I love layering up the colours and stripes that make up a checked pattern! It’s time consuming but fun!
I particularly enjoyed recreating the patterns in this scarf on this little lady peg doll. It was also fun adding the shading to get the “puffa” look to her body warmer.
I actually captured working on some of these details in a video, which you can see here. I’m working on building more videos of my work and processes, so keep an eye on my YouTube channel. I hope to gradually add lots more of my pyrography stages and colouring of my peg dolls.
