I haven’t bought many vintage peg dolls lately, but this tiny peg did catch my eye! I’m unsure of what its purpose would have been, but it is an exact miniture of a normal dolly peg…
I was buying fabric today and on my way to the till (through the craft section!) I found these lovely peg doll birthday cards. I wanted to buy the whole set but setted for two (one of which is actualy for someone)!.
I may have to go back and get the others! If anyone wants one, and they are in the UK, you can buy them from Dunelm Mill.
This little peg is now available as a kit. Choose from four different colour ways and embroider the apron yourself! Buy now from my online shop.
Available in the following colours: Red gingham, Blue gingham, Green gingham, Pale blue with white spots
Your kit provides everything you need including cotton print fabric, embroidery threads, 25 count linen, needle, face transfers (two just in case!), pipe cleaner and comprehensive instructions.
Well it’s out with the old and in with the new so why not start the year off and get creative with some doll making! Visit my shop to buy a kit ready to make up or a bag of essentials just to get you going. There are also face decals for sale if you aren’t confident at drawing your own. These will really give your doll a professional look.

It’s great to know you have inspired someone to be creative…thanks to Rachna for sending me these pictures of her dolls she made to celebrate Diwali. They are so imaginitive, I love them!
She didn’t stop there, here are some more!
I love the fact the the clothes are longer than the pegs. Simple idea but they look fab! The colours are just the ticket for brightening up the onset of winter…
