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!
