Pregnancy Announcement Ideas – Peg Dolls

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.

Grandparents and Grandchildren Personalised Peg Doll Set

Every personalised peg doll commission I make has a special occasion or meaning attached to them for my lovely customers. Therefore, I feel humbled to be asked to create such special gifts.

This particular set was a birthday gift comprising  the grandparents with their little grandchildren. It was such an honour to be able to look through and work from their pictures, which showed the love and special bond the four share.

Of course, the two tiny little peg dolls representing the gorgeous little grandsons steal the show! The elder toddler is wearing a rugby style jersey, while his tiny 2.5cm baby brother is wrapped in the lovely Timbuktale blanket from Mamas and Papas.

My lovely customer sent me such lovely feedback once her sister had received her special gift. She informed me that they are truly treasured and that the family consider them as an heirloom. It’s always so lovely to hear that they bring as much joy to someone as I have creating them 🙂

Peg Dolls Family Set ♥ Welcome, Little One ♥

personalised peg doll family

 I was recently asked To make a sweet little personalised peg doll family as a gift to celebrate the arrival of A beautiful new baby.

This personalised peg doll family set was a lovely gift to make with lots of fun detail to add. The pictures I had to work from were perfect.

The gorgeous little baby boy had a soft chevron blanket in pale hues of green and blue. One of my favourite colour combinations to work with. I think a life time of living by the sea has ingrained these colours deep in my soul. They always appeal to me! A patterned blanket like this is key detail in my peg dolls. It’s something that can be looked back upon and remembered fondly when the baby becomes a boy.

 Mum has a beautiful lemon dress with a sweet pink and blue roses pattern. I love creating detail like this.  Unique patterned and coloured clothing helps personalise the dolls to look like you.

Dad is wearing a check shirt, which I always enjoy recreating on peg dolls. It is so satisfying creating the crossing lines and intersections. And, of course, the star of the family was the beautiful Springer Spaniel!

As well as working on custom peg doll orders, I’ve also busy making Christmas stock! The studio has been awash with angels and elves this week. It’s never too early for me to feel seasonal so I am in my element. Rumour has it that Father and Mrs Christmas will be making an appearance very soon too! We will be at a local Christmas Fayre in November so it is all systems go creating stock for that. Hopefully we will have pieces available for people who are not local too. So watch this festive space! You can always have a peep at what I’m up to in our Peg Doll Gallery, here!

As always,
