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.

It was fun to make and I hope you will like it, too!

  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!
