Peg dolls are a throw back to my youth I guess, what little girl didn’t have one at some point? My collection is steadily growing and you will find some of it here on these pages as well as step by step projects to make your own and lots of ideas. Use the categories and tags to help you find something specific, or just enjoy a browse!
