A Royal occasion…

Coming soon….Wills and Kate peg doll kits!

I have several dolls in my collection of past Kings and Queens but now you can own your very own future King and Queen of England! This lovely peggie couple represent Wills and Kate on the announcement of their engagement complete with the wow blue and diamond engagement ring (in the form of a Swarovski crystal), and Kates now famous blue dress.

The kits will come with everything you need to make the dollies including high quality midnight blue felt, blue chiffon fabric, Swarovski crystal, beads, embroidery thread, and organza ribbon. Full instructions will be included with options to glue or stitch your dolls.

Some more peggies from below stairs…

Governess (ok, a governess would work upstairs!) and kitchen maid

   

A maid (although I’m not quite sure what she is doing!)

  

Maids to bake bread and bellow the fire

Upstairs, downstairs. Part one

The last few posts have been about my dolls so I thought it was time to show some from my collection that other people have made. I thought I would have a bit of a theme and have chosen ‘Upstairs, downstairs’, so I guess we can start with downstairs and the servants…

   

   

 Next post we will show some of the kitchen staff…

An Impromptu peg

I’m usually a planner, but this little peg came quite out of the blue. I did have other intentions for how she was going to come out, but she took on a life of her own.

    

I decided, for a change, not to add a face and let her attire say who she might be.

The bodice is just a folded strip of fabric wrapped around the peg and secured at the back. The dress is a tube gathered around the middle (gathered on the fold to make it puff out) with a lace underskirt made in the same way. Her hair is a handmade cord wrapped around her head with a felt and feather hat. I stuck two beads on for hands and wrapped a length of fabric around her arms as a shawl. She is finished with an organza ribbon tied around her waist.
