Peg Doll Swap

It's been a while... I've been on Instagram...

Anyhow.  I recently signed up for a peg doll swap with Margaret of We Bloom Here  {Thanks Margaret - it was SUPER fun!}.  May kind of whizzed by and I only posted off my little dolls this week.  Terrible, I know!

I'd like to show you what I made.  Would you like to see?

I call them Pixie Puffballs.

My swap partners were very lucky to receive them (well, when the postman delivers them...)  Chloe tried to make a run with them.  All of them.  The little monster!

They were so easy to make.  A little 12mm wood bead for the head.  A few dowel caps glued on for buns.  A lick of paint for hair, a dab of paint for her face.  Flower stamens for her head.  Pom-poms for her chubby little self.  Done!

I strung them on to a narrow ribbon and tied a little loop on each end.  I figure that they would make a cute door decoration or look quite sweet nestled in between pictures on a wall.

I hope that Aimee and Ronnie love them as much as I enjoyed making them.
