Making Peg Dolls

  
In 2013 Hawthorn Press  released 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. The book is also carried by retailers who specialize in Waldorf Education and natural craft supplies such as Bella Luna Toys and A Child's Dream Come True.



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


And now, for more peg doll fun, I have a new book titled Making Peg Dolls & More set to be released Autumn 2014. The premise behind the new book is this:  I wanted to bring peg dolls off the shelf and out of the doll house to spin, fly and travel about in the larger world.   Between the covers of the book there are patterns for dolls to sit on your pincushion & help mind your stitches, dolls flying through the air on dragons and bright winged birds, dolls to accompany children through the day as they face the world and through the night as they dream on their pillows, plus so much more.

Currently, Making Peg Dolls & More is set to release December 1st, 2014 -- just in time for holiday gift-giving.  I will keep you posted with more details as they become available.

  5. Oh, Kathy, a gnome chess set would be just too funny (and cute!) Kind of like the movie "Gnomeo." Have you seen it?

  6. I LOVE THESE! I'm in the middle of fourteen months of only giving my children handmade toys and we're pretty heavy on sewn items at this point. I'm going to make some of these for Easter baskets!

  11. This is so beautiful! Miniatures are my favorite. Do you cover them with a glaze or. Sealant? I am wondering whether or not to get that. Keep up the creations!
