There's been lots of craftiness going on these holidays in the Heart Felt household.
Today Sadie and I made clothes peg dolls using traditional wooden clothes pegs.
First Sadie drew their faces on with pens.
She then chose scraps of fabric for their dresses which I tied on with a piece of wool.
For the man doll I wrapped wool around each leg for his trousers.
Then we wrapped wool around the top half for the doll's shirts and secured the loose end with PVA glue.
For the hair I wrapped wool around my fingers and tied the middle with another strand of wool and glued into place.
Add little details such as hair bows, belts, buttons and ties to give each doll their own character.
She played with them in the garden this afternoon.
She wants to make more to complete her family.
We used the same process to make wooden spoon dolls.
Here Sadie painted the face and also made paper crowns.
