I absolutely LOVE Martin Luther and his wife Katharina von Bora! They will be the cute faced mascots of a celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. LOVE! Thanks!

A director ordered these peg dolls for her cast members and they were all so appreciative! Witnessing reactions is the best part of what I do.

About

Scrambled Pegs.

I have a few pen pals I keep in touch with, and I decided to make them all presents for Christmas, so I made them each a set of wooden John and Hank Green dolls. I posted a picture of them on Tumblr, and people liked them so much I decided to try selling them. I had no idea back then that etsy would become such a big part of my life!
My favorite part about making dolls is knowing that they will become a part of someone else's life. I've made wedding cake toppers, birthday presents, and someone even used one of my dolls to ask a girl to prom! I love it when people add a special note with their purchase telling me what they plan to do with their peg dolls. It always puts a smile on my face.

Each peg doll starts as a blank wooden figure. Then I paint their heads a solid color and dot on their eyes. From there, it's just a matter of adding more and more detail until the dolls are recognizable. Sometimes I add hand-curled embroidery floss for hair, or hand-sculpted clay for hair and other accessories.
After each doll is finished, I put my logo sticker on the bottom, wrap it up, and send it out with a personal thank you note.
