Dolly Clothes Peg

A couple of weeks ago, my flatmate came home with about 20 old wooden clothes pegs that he'd found whilst helping his mum move house. He thought I might turn them into dolls, and although I hadn't thought of doing that before, it brought to mind Sarah Neuburger and The Small Object, who I've been a fan of for a while, and I thought it would be fun to have a go. I painted some, left some wooden, gave each a little bob and tiny features (with little rosy cheeks that always seem to bring things to life), and cut really simple dresses with pinking shears and glued the seams. Et voila! I sold a couple at the craft fair on the weekend (more of that to come), and now I'm going to put the rest on Etsy, a few at a time. Here is the first little batch...
