Dolly Peg Dolls for Handmade Monday Revisited

If you’ve been visiting Planet Penny for a while you may remember that last year I had some fun with Dolly Peg Dolls and Dolly Peg Angels, and there is a ‘how-to’ in pictures in the Tutorial section of Planet Penny.  Well now it’s all in print, as I made this little lady…

for a tutorial in the October issue of The Dolls’ House Magazine!  And it’s out now!

Please excuse the fact that I’m very excited…

I think I’m going to have to make some more.  In fact we are having and Angels and Light Festival in our local church in the run up to Christmas, so I anticipate making several little Dolly Peg Doll Angels for that occasion.  There also some little ladies for sale over on Etsy!

The robins have been breeding well over the last week, it must be the weather…

…and some more little robin wreaths are available on Etsy now

I’m gradually getting into the swing of things after all my sorting out.  I’m so tidy and organised now it makes all the difference being able to find the bits and pieces I want, long may it last!   Anyway, for now I’m going to leave you with a link to Handmade Monday over on Handmade Harbour, and take my poor neglected little dog out for a walk now the sun has come out at last.  I’m getting that ‘look’!

See you soon….x

    Love your Dolly Pegs, they are popular at the moment, I’ve just finished a batch for my next fair. I like the way you have dressed your little ladies.

    You are so clever Penny, is there ever an end to your beautiful talents? Big Congrats to you for this well deserved recognition and I must say that I was just thinking about Peg dolly’s that I made, inspired by you last Christmas as I scrolled back through my blog. I think some new ones will definitely be on the cards this year.
    Love Higgins’s non verbal language, it speaks in volumes and so well captured in your photo. Keep warm…there seems to be a wee chill in our Sussex air ad blessings for this coming week xox Penelope

    ooooh congratulations! i bet you’ll be getting lots of requests for your pretty peg dolls now 🙂 I particularly love the angel, she would look so cute on top of a Christmas tree!

    your robins have been breeding! i’m sure they’ll all be flying the nest soon though 🙂 x

    My Grandma used to make the most amazing dolls from dolly pegs, I must get them out and do a blog post on them. Yours is adorable and how fabulous to be published too.
    The robins are gorgeous and I love them on the wreaths. So festive, but very simple too.

    I especially like the Gibson-Girl type hairdo on that gorgeous little dolly.

    Wow! You’re justly famous! Congratulations and may we see your name splashed over the pages of many more magazines. 🙂

    Those robins are so darn cute. And Higgins has got “the look” down pat – pleading with a hint of pathos.

    Love the dolly peg. Reminds me of being a little girl, we used to make them at school. Not to that quality tho! Well done getting into the mag, i’m not surprised you’re excited!

    We made a crib scene when Lucy was tiny with peg dolls and it survived quite a while before it finally gave up the ghost, thanks for the trip down Memory Lane x

    I’ve kept moving down your page and each time saying ahh. Like many commentors you peg dolls remind me of my childhood. Although yours are much posher than the ones I made. I love the robins, so cute. And your dog looks so sweet. Thanks for sharing.
