...making peg dolls. I think every craftster experiences the dilemma of to work or to create. However, I figured out a way to justify the creating as work.... sort of. For example, I made Penny (above) for my niece. Making Penny falls into the work category, because she wasn't for me, BUT instead she was a birthday present for my niece, AND I am blogging about Penny the peg doll, AND the blog is somewhat work related (my shops are linked), THEREFORE... doll making is work! Phew - I feel less guilty now.
Penny's "vintage purse" is needle felted (yet another obsession). I also needle felted the buttons on her dress as well as the trim. I'm really excited about the dress, because I designed the dress to be removable by attaching a snap to the back of the dress. It's a super easy dress pattern. There's just one front piece, two back pieces and the collar pieces. That's it! No hemming, because it's made of wool felt.
Along with the doll, I put together a peg doll kit for my niece. Now, she can make Penny some friends.
Because the dress pattern was so easy, I also made my daughter a peg doll.
This is Penelope, but my daughter calls her Ella =)
