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 children, parents, and teachers to enter the tiny, magical world of peg dolls...
Coming from the Waldorf handcraft tradition, these irresistible dolls encourage creative play and promote the emotional and imaginative development of young children. Peg dolls can be made from natural materials to reflect the seasonal cycle, favorite fairytales and festivals from around the world.
Inside this book, you will find patterns for creating bluebirds & butterflies, flowers and fairytale figures, gnomes, winter angels, and more:
“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, UK Handmade (ukhandmade.co.uk)
