Review

"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

This colorful, well laid out book presents a delightful array of "Peg Dolls." Whether one is drawn to creating "doll families," the woodland creatures or seasonal characters there is something for everyone in the pages of this colorful book. With bits and pieces of felt and other fabric for costumes and some paints or markers for drawing the faces and hair, the wooden pegs adopt whimsical and delightful personalities. Minimal supplies are needed and the book gives a list of excellent sources for ordering the inexpensive pegs. I was so impressed with "Making Peg Dolls," I ordered one for my creative and crafty granddaughter.

Beautiful photography and cute ideas. I was looking for something more to give me ideas on different ways to do hair or faces or different painting techniques, where as this is really more for if you want to dress them up and make accessories. Great ideas, just not quite what I was looking for.

Yep....I got this book for myself...an adult. For no other reason then I love dolls. The selection is grand and the Halloween trick-or-treaters and the Christmas projects (angels, nativity, and Father Winter) are worth the price of the book. I wish there was a look inside feature because it would be of great value, I'm sure. The book is well made, too. Lovely, just lovely. I do agree with the person who noted that in the nativity set there are wool felt animals shown but no patterns for them. I wish those would've been included instead of a couple really simple dolls, but there must've been reasons. Another really good thing is that all different sizes of pegs are used. I think that's great because they are very inexpensive and just plain fun! Brings me back to a simple time and simple joy! I am really glad I bought this book! Very happy with it!!!

What a charming book! It is a beautiful book full of wonderful ideas and the illustrations are lovely with clear easy directions. It also leaves room for you to use your imagination and the possibilities are endless. So far I have made the peg people but am planning on having the children in my classroom make them too! What a fun book!

This book contains a lot of creative ideas, complete with patterns and instructions. Some of the designs seem to be derivations of designs that I have seen elsewhere, but I think that's unavoidable with a subject like this. There are also many unique designs and ideas. I am having fun with the book.
