I made some peg dolls! My partner in the Vintage Christmas swap (the awesome Ms. pottermouth!) just received the package I sent her, so now I can post it. She had a lot of peg dolls on her Pinterest, and I thought they were adorable, so I decided to try my hand at making a couple. She named them Pixie and Trixie, the Peppermint Twins, which I think suits them to a tee. Look at this cute "vintage" photo she took of them.


I gave each of the girls something to hold: the brunette has a couple of Christmas packages and an oversized ornament, while the blonde is holding a tiny tree and a "Merry Christmas" banner. Originally I designed them to both hold a banner that said "joy", but I really wasn't happy with the way it looked, so I decided they'd each be happier standing on their own.

Here's the blonde. The banner was cut from a sheet of scrapbook paper. Its flagstaff is a bamboo skewer. Both of the skirts were made by hand sewing a pre-made ruffle around the peg pin. 


The brunette's ski cap is actually an acorn top. I glittered around the bottom and made a little clay pom pom for the top.


One more photo of the girls together:


I have supplies to make four more dolls. I can't wait to see who they turn out to be. Smiley

These are just way too cute and you really captured the (50's?) era look.  Are they a clothespin body?  Love'em!

They're absolutely darling! Love the little banners, and it was such a clever idea how you made the ski cap, too! Smiley

These are so incredible. Each little detail was making me look to try and figure out how you made them so real looking. The ear muffs, the skirts, acorn hat, etc. Love how you see things for what they can be.  Smiley
