A peg doll exhibition

I actually hav a few peg doll things to post, but every time I sit down to do it I get interrupted! I hope to get up-to-date soon and try and post a little more often. I’m very excited about an event happening in Oswestry….An olympic peg doll exhibition!

The idea is to make your own doll based on the olympics, and send it to the gallery for the exhibition. The plan is to have 5000 dolls on display by August! You can have a helping hand by buying a kit from the Qube with everything you need to make two peg dollies. They even give you a freepost label to send your doll back, so there really are no excuses! Buy your great value kit from E-bay, just search ‘peg doll’.

Check out their website for more info: www.qube-oca-org.uk

Here are a few dolls already completed to give you some ideas:

           

So get those brains into gear and see what you can come up with!
