Book Giveaway : : Peg Dolls and More

If you've been around here for long you know we're a bit peg dog obsessed over here.

As in: I dare you to type "peg people" in the search bar to the right and see just how many posts come up. On second thought, don't. It a little embarrassing how many posts on the subjects I've written through the years. Goodness.

When it comes to homemade treasures, our house is brimming with peg dolls.

From zipper pulls to favorite necklaces, key chains to doll house dolls, mobiles to ornaments. There are even peg doll fairies peeking out from under the leaves of the house plant in our kitchen.


It's a shameless love affair, with just the tiniest dose of shame for overdoing it.

So when long-time Clean reader Margaret Bloom invited us to review her new book (and share a copy with you!) it was a a no-brainer. Our paint brushes were ready. We couldn't wait to see what Margaret had dreamed up for us this time around.

Making Peg Dolls and More is the second whimsical book of of Margaret's that we've had the pleasure to read.

Her first book, Making Peg Dolls, (which I shared with you back in 2013) holds a duly-earned place of honor in our craft cabinet and has been well loved by all the crafty folk around here.

Her new book picks up where her first left off, with inspired new projects that move beyond what the expected for peg doll crafts.

Working with peg people, other wooden bits, ribbon, paint, fabric, and other embellishment Margaret guides you through crafting wall hangings, mobiles, puppets, and other charming projects. Her ideas are sure to inspire the crafty people in your home for years to come. There's even a zipper pull project inspired by one I made for Lupine several years ago. (I'm so happy to see that project included, Margaret!)

Margaret was kind enough to offer up a copy of Making Peg Dolls and More to one lucky reader. If you'd like a chance at winning just leave a comment below. I'll close comments and choose a winner by the end of the week!

Comments are now closed. Congratulations to our winner Keri who said…

"What a lovely book! Would love to read it."


And if you win a copy or not, do save a place on your bookshelf. You'll be so glad you did.

    This is something I know my 8 year old and I would love to explore together. Thanks for the chance to win.

  2. Annie says:

    This book sounds like it would be a perfect guide to use with my little grandsons. They are so naturally nurturing. Last night we gave our Gabriel a wool felt mouse for him to play with. He immediately protected it from the cats and when he went home, used a wee tin box to fashion a safe bed for it (against his cats..) Peg dolls sound like a great way to further the nurture.

  3. Marianne says:

    I have A heart for all things handmade. I’d love to add this to my repertoire! Thanks for the opportunity!

  4. Kristin says:

    This looks like a fantastic book to add to our collection at home. And to create with my 3 littles! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  5. Jessica says:

    Oh, this looks like a wonderful book! We have the first and love making peg dolls-perhaps too much. Our peg people are quickly outgrowing their home.

  6. Melanie says:

    Oh, so much peg doll love here in our home! Currently, the 8 year old is making peg people for each of the countries that we study using Little Passports! Thanks!

  7. Renee says:

    We’re just beginning to explore the wonderful world of peg dolls here, so I would love to win a copy!

  8. Hillary says:

    While my son is a little too young to enjoy this kind of craft, I know my sister’s kids would love it!

  9. Erika says:

    You don´t have that many posts about pegdolls in my opinion! They are great and I would love to use the book to make dolls since I have been given clues I am a soon-to-be-aunt! Nothing set in stone yet but I am so excited and want to start straight away in making babythings and blankets!

  10. Fräulein Rucksack says:

    A friend of us just got into turnery and guess what I ordered… my girl loves my (!) knitting doll collection just to play with so no doubt she’d love all peg doll creatures. Thank you!

  11. Sherry Grisham says:

    We love peg dolls and my grandkids benefit from all the crafting. Plus learn to do their own. We would love a copy of the book.

  12. Nikki T says:

    Perfect timing! We gave our daughters some peg people for Christmas and this would be a great source of inspiration as they begin creating. Thank you:)

  13. Jana says:

    I’d love to introduce this craft with my kids and daycare kids, plus have them to play with afterwards 🙂

  14. Mel Cherney says:

    Oh this book looks amazing! My 7 year old is learning how to knit and hand sew and loves making little dolls to go along with stories we read!

  15. ~Yola says:

    I have a collection of materials set aside that I add to regularly, but am apparently afraid to put to use! Some inspiration and instruction is just what I need to overcome my perfectionism and help my 3 and 6 year old make some dolls already!

  16. Angie says:

    Thank you Rachel for sharing your obsession and bringing it into my own home. I seriously melt whenever I see peg dolls and Margaret’s books are amazing. I have only viewed the book online and would love to have it in my craft room. Thanks for the opportunity and continued encouragement to bring peg dolls into ones life – they really do make it better 🙂

  17. Suzie says:

    I was so happy when the library accepted my request to purchase “Making Peg Dolls.” I constantly have it checked out or on hold. I would love to see the new book!

  18. JennG says:

    I’ve never done any peg doll projects, but they look so cute & I bet my four year old would love it too!

  19. Emilie says:

    Looks like lots of fun, would love to win a copy!
    Been trying to craft more with the kiddos, but being very uncrafty myself has proven a challenge. Craft books to the rescue!

  20. Dreamer Becky says:

    ohhh…thank you for this lovely giveaway ~ we’d LOVE a chance to take our own peg doll *obsession* 😉 to a whole new level – my 11 yr old is DELIGHTED & INSPIRED to get making an “interactive” carrying bag & peg family for her cousins upcoming birthday! Homeschooling at its finest ~ thank you for the inspiration+*+*+

  26. Janet Johnson says:

    I have followed her blog a while, wanting either of her books, or both!, but not able to get one yet. Would love to win this one! They are just enchanting and creative. Wish I had done this with my teens when they were younger, but we could still try some in art class in our homeschool!

  27. says:

    I have just started making peg dolls with my son and the littles I look after. I was gifted Margaret Bloom book making peg dolls at Christmas and would love to create from this one too.

  28. Erin VL says:

    Ooops! That other Erin VL was the wrong address. 🙁
    This one is correct thought. Thanks for the wonderful give-away!

  29. melanie says:

    I love the first book and the crafty afternoons we have because of it. The second book would be a very welcomed new inspiration for my Family.

  30. Kate says:

    The first book, Making Peg Dolls, has been on my Amazon wishlist since you posted about it in 2013….oh, I would love this!
