I'm finishing off the clothes for the latest little doll that I'm dressing, here she is in her undies. Not a makeover this time, just some new clothes. I wondered what mothers of little ones think about buttons on doll's clothes. I love to finish the little garments off with buttons and buttonholes or press studs but of course they're a choking hazard. Learning to do up buttons helps little fingers to become dexterous and they have buttons on their own clothing; however, some kids have a real 'mouth thing' and everything goes in there, so buttons could get chewed off anything. Velcro is definitely the safer option but it sticks to everything and is a real pain in the neck. Of course I'll ask my friend, whose doll I am dressing. It was her daughter's and she plans to put it away in case she becomes a grandma one day, so it will probably be played with by little children. I think I've just answered my own question - Velcro is the safer option. I'll save buttons for competition dolls clothes but I'd love to hear the views of a mother or two. Our daughter, her husband and the boys came home yesterday. A joyous reunion - 11 weeks is such a long time. Their little dog Pepper wagged his little tail until I thought it would fall off then jumped into their car without a backward glance. Oh perfidious Pepper. Lol. Not very flattering. Time for our walk now. It will feel strange not stopping at every post. Bye for now until next time.
