Ladies Who Lunch: Peg Dolls

I wanted to make some ‘ladies who lunch’ for a post on The Veg Space and made Mollie and Mabel out of dolly pegs with heads and feet ordered from Its The Cats Whiskers who stock all sorts of handy bits and bobs.

I painted their faces and hair with standard acrylic paints, making Mabel’s beehive bun from embroidery thread.  Then coated the whole lot in varnish to seal.

They have pipe cleaner arms, and their trendy outfits are made from wide satin ribbon from St Albans market, all held together with a glue gun!
