Family of Peg Dolls – Stars, Scarves and Bow Ties

I am always excited when I get a new commission for a family of peg dolls. Usually it means a whole lot of bright and colourful clothing to work with.  This group was certainly no exception!

All of the outfits for this family were full of the patterned details that I love to work with.

Here is the first of the couples within the group:

This amazing silk scarf was a dream to recreate! I loved the challenge of working the patterns across the folds and drapes in the material.

The second couple are just as bold and beautiful!

The lady has her sunglasses on her head and I loved her shooting star jersey!

And what about this shirt! Isn’t it amazing? I love recreating check shirts anyway, but the addition of the tiny music notes and cheeky lady sat io a guitar knocks this one out of the ball park!

The sweet children don’t disappoint either. The cool dude on the left has a funky rocket jumper, and a cape with his name on the back! The little baby is decorated in a blanket inspired by his big brothers’ space jumper!peg doll family, peg doll children

This commission also includes two much-loved dogs. as both have passed away, I was asked to include wings on their backs in remembrance.

Ice Hockey Peg Doll – Let’s Go Devils!

I was recently asked to create an Ice Hockey Peg doll for a teams’ biggest little fan!

Lola was about to turn 9, and had recently got into watching the Cardiff Devils play. Her mum got in touch to ask if it would be possible to make a personalised peg doll of her wearing their jersey.

Mr T and I started to go and watch The Devils ourselves last year, so I know how totally addictive live matches and cheering The Devils on is! I of course jumped at the chance to make a special ice hockey peg doll for her!

And here she is….her own little devil!Ice Hockey Peg Doll, cardiff devils, chl, ice hockey, personalised peg doll, peg dollIce Hockey Peg Doll, cardiff devils, chl, ice hockey, personalised peg doll, peg doll

Needless to say, I LOVED working the tiny logo details on to the ice hockey peg doll! And for once – I remembered to take in-progress pictures to share!

I drew the outlines of the logo first, to make sure I got them just right and fit them into the tiny area on the dolls tummy. The tip of my finger here helps give some perspective into how small the work was.

Then of course, I carefully coloured it in, sealing each colour as I went to keep them vibrant and avoid bleeding from the high pigment content.

To truly personalise the peg doll, I added Lola’s name and age to the back in the style that the players have on their shirts.Ice Hockey Fan Peg Doll

Another peg doll commission that was completely up my street!

Lola’s and her Mum loved the finished peg doll! Mum left a lovely review on my facebook page which is always so lovely to read! The Cardiff Devils definitely have an awesome new little fan cheering them on from the stands!

A Very Personal Personalised Peg Dolls set

Every commission for a set of personalised peg dolls that I receive is an honour. I love what I do, and it is still always a bit astounding that other people love them enough too to want to own a set for themselves.

So you can imagine how pleased I was to be asked to make a family set of dolls for one of my oldest and dearest friends. This set of Personalised peg dolls really was “personal”!

Of course, this added a new level of pressure above that which I usually feel when working on a commission to get them just right!

My lovely friend made no hesitation in sending me the loveliest outfits for me to work on! Her pictures were perfect; lots of bright colours and fun patterns to recreate.

I was totally spoilt with the ladies’ dresses! It was certainly a challenge to capture the spirit of the chirpy owls on this popular British designers’ dress on such a teeny scale, but it was a lot of fun to do! I also loved the gorgeous geometric patterns of the dress on the right. I am easily pleased; projects involving colour and geometric patterns is all it takes!

Let’s not forget about this gorgeous little guy! How fun is his dinosaur jumper? I loved recreating the little Jurassic creatures on the tiny 6cm peg doll.

His Dad’s t-shirt was a good one too! I loved creating the wave logo and blending the reds, oranges and yellows together. Really distinctive motifs like these always work really well to make your peg dolls instantly recognisable to your recipient.

A gorgeous set of family peg dolls for a truly special and gorgeous family ♥

A Personalised Peg Dolls Proposal!

It’s Valentines Day, so what is more fitting than sharing a romantic story involving my personalised peg dolls?!

I was thrilled last year when the partner of my old Uni friend got in touch asking if I could make a set of their little family. Every commission is lovely, but there’s something even more magical about making peg dolls for special friends.

He had one special request for the set. Could I make my friend in her Wonder Woman costume? Well, of course I could! We all know (almost) anything goes here at Pink Elephant Crafts!

I’d presumed that he was just getting very organised and ordering a lovely Christmas present. So imagine my absolute delight when my friend text me these photos!

She walked into the lounge to find three little piles of gifts, each with a wooden plaque. They read “Wonder Woman,” “Wonder Woman,” and …….. “Wonder Wife?”

Sam really is a Wonder Woman. And the character had always had a special meaning to them both.

Isn’t that an amazing and romantic way to propose for a superhero-loving couple?

I was over the moon that my little personalised peg dolls played a part in it too!
