Dolls and old buttons

I've made more finger dolls. Dont know if I prefer short curly hair or long pony tails...
Old red buttons found yesterday
More old buttons bought yesterday. The blue ones are made of glass.

Regular readers will know that finding an old 'finger doll' from a few years back made me want to make some more. These ones are a bit fatter than the original. I just drew round my longest finger for the pattern. Also these are new, improved because there are four different Liberty fabrics on each and because I like the back as much as the front I decided to embroider faces on both sides! 

I love to use old buttons in my makes. Whether it's to do up a necklace or bracelet or to decorate a doll or a collage, old buttons have far more visual impact than new buttons. Agree?
