I'm making more of these!

I made some of these button bracelets last year and they were a hit at my craft show so I'm making more of them. I found pink elastic in a bag of vintage goodies that I got at an antique store, I love how it looks, I used only black elastic last year. This year I'm gonna make some with pink, white and black elastic. I got some super cute polka dot buttons too so they are extra cute, I am in love with polka dots can't have enough. Can you notice my yellow polka dot table cloth under the bracelets!
I made one of these it's a different style, I sewed the buttons to a leather strip and used a smaller button with a loop closure. Not sure I'll make more of these even though this one turned out SUPER cute.
Sorry I haven't been a very good blogger lately. I've been VERY busy! There's always so much to do in the spring, spring cleaning, yard work etc. Hopefully I'll post pictures soon of the 3 new purses I finished up last week. I'm gonna start making dollies soon now that I can hang them on the line outside to dry after I coffee stain them. I think it will be a nice change to make dolls after concentrating on purse making for a while now. Hope you all had a good Monday!

I love these bracelets--they are so joyful and fun. Buttons are charming....I use them in interiors occasionally. And your Annie dolls are really a neat variation on tradition!
