The first pictures of Wills, Cate and the new future King! You saw them here first….:)
The waterslide transfer faces are great for making little peggies, but check this peg doll face out!
She has been covered in fabric, sculpted and painted and is just beautiful. Take a closer look:
The detail continues throughout the whole doll right down to the beads on the front of her dress, the tiny little gold necklace and the ringlets in her hair. Someone has had alot of fun making her!
Clearing the decks of those little pegs that have been hanging around with no clothes on, or no faces etc. This one was going to be Marie Antoinette but I only got as far as the hair! I was rather instinctive with this one and made a rather fantastical dress up instead! It’s a bit mad but quite good fun…
Or rather a finished one! Time for a spring clean and to finish those peg dolls started but for some reason side lined to the work-in-progress pile. All she needed was a face, hair and arms. Oh yes and a lovely big daisy to ponder over! This fabric appears in another doll on this site, can you spot which one? Another view of her:
So I got all of my dolls out over Christmas and gave them a bit of a sort. Amongst them are some of the first ones I made including this Geisha doll:
The design is a fairly simple one: The fabric is wrapped around the body in a tube and sewn up along the back, and the sleeves are rectangles sewn up along one edge and a pipecleaner threaded through. I made another tube in pink and tied it around her wasit creating two loops which I sewed into place:
I used cotton embroidery thread for the hair which I glued to her head in spirals. I made a bun in the same way and added lengths of wire for her hair ornaments.
Some drops of beads sewn on to the front of her hair finished her off nicely!
