I have really enjoyed making these peg dolls recently. I have come to the conclusion that I prefer to make small things - they are fiddly but the results are seen sooner and they don't take up too much space.
In the process of making some for me and some to give, they have evolved and (I think) improved. They have more hair, quite a lot of hair - I like that about them, and all wear pantaloons (they were a bit rude before) - I think that will be the format from now on.
I feel they are ready for sale now and they are the first occupants of my re-opened shop. I have called them Lillipegs as whilst thinking of a name I was reminded of the little people in Gulliver's Travels, they are the size I imagine the little people would have been.
Each Lillipeg has an individual name. This is Lottie:
this is Monique:
and this is Pandora:
Each has her own fabric envelope to travel in.
They are available in my updated shop now. I will be adding more handcrafted and vintage items over the next few days and weeks.
In between making Lillipegs I managed to fit in some thrifting last week (what, more?!), some lovely finds that I'll show next time.
Mr. Bloom is decorating the hall and stairs so once again there is upheaval and disruption. There is definately an unwelcome pattern evolving here!
