The girls and I love peg dolls. Don't ask me how or why we started making them, but we've had a little collection going for a few years now, and have several 'installations' around the house. Something about their simplicity and quirkiness is very appealing.
So I asked them if they would make me a few dolls that I could use in an upcoming promotion we are having instore. Small Acorns is having a 'peg doll competition'. Inspired by Project Runway, and our new season Trelise Cooper kids clothes, we thought it might be fun to see how creative our young ones could be. We will display all the entered peg models instore, and the winner will win Trelise Cooper kids clothes to the value of $250. The only stipulation is that you must be 14 years old or younger.
I needed a few peg dolls that could be photographed to promote the competition and generate a few ideas.
My girls were wildly excited. Could they enter? They both fancy being let loose with a voucher to choose things Mummy won't let them have.
'Of course', I said....'but you won't win'.
'Even if our dolls are the best' said Milly?
'You still won't win'.
'Is that kind of like pass the parcel at my birthday party when you say I won't win either' said Eva?
'Exactly' I said.
But, if you fancy entering, or if you know someone who might like to enter, the need to knows are all here...
And you have a good chance of winning. We'll even send you a starter kit with a peg and a few fabrics if you like.
We'll see you on the runway!
