Buttons! You may not have a stash of them, but I’m sure somebody you know does. And having lots of extra buttons around is probably what led someone to create this type of doll.
I have seen these made completely from buttons and fabric, however the tutorial I found called for the wooden doll body and mini spools (along with the buttons) for the arms and legs.
I like how she turned out overall, though I still am working on the right shape for her dress.
Maybe you made these when you were little with your mom or grandma. If so, what a precious memory that must be. Why not take time to make a doll and a sweet memory with your daughter or granddaughter?
