Having fun when making!
A couple of years ago I made some Peg Doll Fairies for the Christmas Open House.
I drew the faces and hair on using felt tip pens!
Having a good old chat with the lovely Ragged Roses some time ago, she mentioned that you could buy little faces just for peg dolls!
So i bought some and squirreled them away, like you do!
When clearing out my sewing cupboard the other day, I came across an envelope filled with these faces! How could I have forgotten such sweet innocent expressions!?
This is where the fun bit happened! I decided to paint the hair on these lovely ladies. Can you imagine my surprise to find that such a simple thing as painting different hairstyles could make someone so happy!
There I was Classic FM on, painting away imagining each one as a unique character!
Perhaps they were whispering to each other.......
........''who is this strange woman seeking such simple pleasures!"
......... "I'm in the queue next!" ...... " ooh, look at her with her polka dot top!"
At least one has her wings and skirt, just need to get her jewels and sparkles on, fit for the top of the tree!
See, you can have fun when making things!
