Handmade Friends

Following a discussion about childhood pastimes I was given a fun and original gift for my birthday in July.  A peg doll of me.  This was created by artist Maxine Greer who also gave me a pack of dolly pegs with the instruction that I make them into dolls.  I was delighted with my dolly doppelgänger and made it into a pendant straight away.  Later I made my friend and niece peg dolls of themselves for their birthdays.

So – when it was time to make some pocket money gifts for a recent craft fair – it had to be peg dolls. I’ve created a range of characters so far – it was great fun to do and there will be lots more to follow. You can find them on Folksy –  here.
