I’ve always thought that my peg dolls would make perfect personalised bridesmaid gifts, but never had the time to act on it. Luckily for me, a customer had the same idea, and asked me to make a personalised peg doll for each of her bridesmaids.
Of course I jumped at the chance! I was excited on receiving her photos as each of the dresses were different. They were all united by the same, soft blush colour, but each had a different style.
Two of the dresses were full length, while one was tea-dress length. The bodices of the left and centre dresses were fully sequined. Yay for breaking out my sparkly special effect finish! The third bridesmaid bodice was embroidered, with a more subtle spatter of sparkles and sequins here and there.
The backs of each dress were different too, and each girl was having a different hairstyle. However, little white flowers thread amongst the strands of hair were a common theme. I loved adding these differing details to each peg doll, making them a truly personalised bridesmaid gift.
The skirts were made of layers of beautiful light tulle fabric. So I carefully used water colour, adding a gentle base layer of colour, and then pencils to add the effect of soft pleats and layers on top.
The matching bouquets of wine-coloured gerberas, white carnations and gypsophila were the finishing touches for each peg doll.
These personalised bridesmaid gifts were an absolute treat for me to create, and my customer loved surprising each of her friends with them on her wedding day. If it’s something you’d like to think about for your bridesmaid gifts, drop me a line using our contact form.
