Please do not adjust your sets, peg doll lovers….you are NOT seeing double!
This was a beautiful request for two identical, matching peg doll couples. They were a special birthday request for a lovely couple who currently live at opposite ends of the country. Mum wanted two identical sets, so that both her son and his girlfriend each now has a set to keep at with them at home. Such a thoughtful gift, and a very romantic idea!
There were lots of lovely details on this set. The lady peg doll had a pretty black dress embroidered with hundreds of tiny flowers. They took forever to draw and colour by hand, especially having to do them twice over! But it was very much worth it. I really loved her specs too, there was such a fab shape to the frames! Glasses are always tricky, managing to burn each side equally is always a challenge. This time of course that challenge was doubled and I had 4 lenses to get right.
The guy peg doll also had some lovely touches! As a big Swansea City Football supporter, a match day programme was popped in his back pocket. A subtle nod to his home team.
His denim shirt also was lovely to work on, with unusual floral motifs on the front and back.
A super-trendy, lovely little couple that was a total pleasure to work on. Both times!
