Just a quick scroll through Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest will show couples are looking for and coming up with more and more interesting pregnancy announcement ideas. I think my peg dolls, particularly the style of these I’m sharing with you today, could fit the bill. Read on to find out how.
Imagine my delight when a lovely regular customer asked if I could make a special, surprise gift for her brother and sister in law. They had just found out that they were expecting their first baby!
Her ideas combined with my artistic style of resulted in a sweet little pair of peg dolls to make this special moment in time for the parents to be.
One of the special requests was that her brother’s tshirt should have the Levi’s text replaced with “Dad”. Of course, I love adding special little touches like these for my customers to make their orders really personal.
She also wanted to somehow include the as-of-yet-unborn baby in the tummy, but without it getting gory! So I sent her a few sketches of my ideas and we both decided that a cute heart on the tummy was the best and loveliest way to achieve it.
This peg doll set was a gift for the parents to be, but they’d be perfect for pregnancy announcement ideas for your Facebook and Instagram! A little more creative than the usual scan shot too. You might add them as your profile photo, or get extra creative and make a little stop-motion animation with them. You could have a set made to give to your parents to let them know they’re going to be Grandparents! Additionally, gift some to your best friend at her baby shower.
