Are these not the cutest things you've seen in a long long time? I haven't done any peg dolls since these and these. We are way past due people!
We spent yesterday afternoon painting these guys. Actually most of them are girls. I should have snapped a photo of the backs of them. There are lots of pony tails and braids going on in the back. My little one wanted in on the action. She painted "Alex" the one on the right. I think she did a fantastic job. He was a boy at first. And then she changed her mind and decided it should be a girl. Hence the name Alex. It can go either way.
Today we decided that they needed a "home". Some way to keep them organized and handy. I put my oldest daughter to work making this peg doll carrier. We dug out some fabric scraps and I set her loose in my sewing room. All it takes is two strips of fabric about eighteen inches long and some thread. She sewed the strips together and then sewed little pockets for each of the dolls to slip in to. To make it extra fabulous, she labeled each pocket with the doll's name.
Add some ribbon to the end.
And tie them all up nice with a bow!
So, what do dice games and peg dolls have in common? Tune in tomorrow and I promise it will all make sense.
