Personalised Peg Doll Family – H&N Part Two

Last week I shared a post about a set of peg dolls commissioned for a lovely couple, H and her husband, by their daughter in law. You can catch it here if you missed it! When H received her personalised peg doll set, she was so thrilled with them that she got in touch straight away to ask if I could also create her three sons to complete their family.

So here they are:

For once, I remembered to take some in-process photos so that I can share how each one is made with you. Hooray me!

I even filmed burning one of them from start to finish, in real time, if you’d like a peep into the work that goes into my peg dolls.

This is how the peg doll looks when he is ready for colouring:

And here’s the finished article after hours of colouring by hand. I loved recreating his floral tie.

H’s next son was to wear his favourite teams’ football kit. This is actually a remake of a peg doll I’ve made before, for H’s daughter in law. It’s always a lovely feeling to be asked to make a personalised peg doll a second time!

Here you can see me carefully adding some of the details to his t-shirt.

The final peg doll is proudly wearing his Navy uniform.

This was a lot of fun for me to recreate, and it’s the first Navy uniform I’ve been commissioned to make. Also, it gave me the opportunity to break out the gold paint¬† which is reserved for the most special occasions!

I loved adding these tiny painted details with a fine brush!
