Sint pieten peg dolls home
Making peg dolls is so much fun, we just can't resist. At the last minute we quickly make a Sint and Pietjes. This time with mixed techniques ;) painting and sewing. And when we're almost done, we hear that someone very important is missing! Oh no! Yes, Amerigo is missing. We have to make up for that very quickly because what is a Saint Nicholas without his trusty horse?
