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 personalised peg dolls 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!

A big thank you to my gorgeous friend Sam for allowing me to share her special photos and story!

Peg Doll Family Giant Commission

I love receiving a commission for a new peg doll family, and this special order was quite exceptional!

A spectacular 16 dolls (including two beloved dogs) were to make up the biggest commission I had made to date.

The giant set was going to be given as a very special gift to the two central members of the family: Mum and Dad.

I was sent plenty of photos to work from, and it was fun setting the individual dolls up into little individual sub-families for photos when they were complete!

I totally love how each little mini peg doll family came together to create the entire clan!

It’s hard to pick out in the picture, but this lovely lady’s jacket has a fine ribbed appearance. She also has a silver necklace. The gentlemans’ colourful belt was also very special to him. It’s little details like this that I especially love adding to each of my custom peg dolls! It makes them truly unique and guarantees they will be treasured.

Cake Topper Peg Dolls

Did you know our peg dolls also make the perfect wedding cake topper?

I was asked to make a set of peg dolls consisting of a couple and their much-loved dog. This  was a very special gift to a bride and groom from the Mother of the Bride. As the happy couple spend their time walking the pooch and building their dream home, comfy hoodies and jeans were the order of the day.

The little details, as always, were lovely to add to these peg dolls. I really enjoyed creating the plaited hair style on the bride. A little artistic licence allowed me to add a flower too! I loved the fact that I was told the groom wears shorts most of the year round. Reminds me of my own Mr T who never seems to feel the cold and is always in long shorts. Men eh?

My lovely customer confided that she hoped that they would use the peg dolls as their wedding cake topper. So imagine my delight when she sent me these pictures following the big day!

How sweet do they look on top of that beautiful naked wedding cake?

If you would like your peg dolls to be used as a cake topper,  let us know when you order. We will drill the dolls and provide you with removable wooden rods. These will secure your toppers into the cake, but are easily removed afterwards. Then your cake topper can sit on a shelf or table just like our regular peg dolls, allowing them to be treasured and enjoyed well beyond your special day. You can find a little bit more information about them here.

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!

Personalised peg dolls – it’s all in the details!

With all of the custom, personalised peg dolls that I make, it’s all in the details! The facial features of my dolls are all similar in style, with their rosy cheeks and closed, contented eyes, so it’s the hair and clothes which help to transform them into little wooden representations of real-life people!

As I mentioned in my last post, the clothing is the key here, and I love working with pretty details on colourful and patterned clothes.  I received this lovely little commission to make a peg doll gift set for a very special friend, and couldn’t wait to find the perfect photos to start on their personalised dolls!

Recreating patterns in a way that works well on the tiny peg dolls is my favourite part of my work and I was really pleased with how this lovely, pretty top worked out! The peg dolls made a long journey all the way from Wales, here in the UK, to their new home in Sydney, Australia – lucky, lucky little personalised peg dolls I say!!

Happy Saturday lovelies xxx
