Making Peg Dolls

Margaret Bloom

"This is a great book to enjoy with the kids, as a parent or teacher, but even if you don't have children, let yourself reconnect with your inner child and fall in love with this magical world of tiny wooden characters. I don't have any children, but I confess, I'm completely enchanted by these sweet little dolls, and at some point I'm going to cave in to the need to create my own little Gnome, or Bear, or Bunny, or Dragon, or Owl, or maybe even a Cat!" —Dawn Bevins (read her full review at UKHandmade.com)



Peg dolls are small, enchanting, and easy to make. They are a perfect craft for children and can become the inspiration for endless play and storytelling. Margaret Bloom invites you to enter the tiny magical world of peg dolls.
