There’s just something so special about the bond between children and pets. It’s beautiful to witness, and I’m sure many of us can think back to many a childhood hour spent in the company with our four-legged best friends of our youth.
One of my lovely customers recognised this special bond between her granddaughter and her dog, and having read my information about having custom peg dolls made, she got in touch.
I loved the sassiness of the little girl that I felt from her photos! Her fabulous outfit was to consist of denim dungarees, a stripey tee, leggings and trainers. I want to dress like this kid when I’m a grown up! With her hair in that classic “half up, half down” style, I loved every second of recreating her spirit in tiny wooden doll form.
I love creating stripey clothes on my peg dolls. It take a bit of a patience and very stead hand, but I find it very therapeutic. It always gives a striking result too! I hope stripes don’t go out of fashion!
And the dog was a pretty cool canine too, sporting a pretty little floral bandana! The bandana fabric was blue, dotted with little pink roses with yellow leaves. So very pretty indeed.
Is there a cool kid and his cat, or a little person and their parrot or a friend and their fish that you’d like immortalised forever?!
My peg dolls are ornaments, not toys, they make a perfect record of this unique and special bond between children and pets, serving as a beautiful memory of their friendship in years to come. Drop me a line using the contact form, and we can chat about your ideas!
