Making Peg Dolls


 Hawthorn Press has now released my book Making Peg Dolls.


It's 192 pages of peg doll love, with patterns for over 60 different doll designs, step by step instructions, and everything!  The book can be ordered from The Book Depository, Bookstore at Rudolf Steiner College, Steiner Books, Waldorf BooksBooktopia, Amazon, or your favorite local book seller. It is also carried by retailers who specialize in Waldorf Education and natural craft supplies such as A Child's Dream Come True.





Here's an animated trailer for the book -- 
It was fun to make and I hope you will like it, too!

  2. Oh, I love these. To simplify making dots on the faces, use the "wrong" end of a paintbrush. Just dip it in paint, and dot it on. Perfect circles every time!

  5. These are lovely! I can't wait to try some...however, I can't find wooden pegs similar to yours. Where can they be purchased?

  6. Dear Anonymous -- Here's the answer to your query:

    Via mail order you can get them at Casey's Wood or Woodworks, Ltd. in the U.S., Bear Dance Crafts in Canada and Winterwood Toys in Australia. You can find a local Waldorf/Steiner Education supply store or, if you are in the United States or Canada you can also check Michael's Craft Supply.

    Good luck!

  10. They are fantastic. I've found some where to buy them in the UK and will give them a go. What sort of paints do I need?

    Thanks

  11. I LOVE THEM!!! And would like to try some for my girl.
    I have a question. After you paint the peg dolls, do seal the colors with something or you just paint them?
    thank you!!!
