I bought these little flapper face buttons and decided to embroider them some bodies.  I also used metallic floss to add some sparkle.

Oh my goodness! I've got a bunch of buttons like that & started embroidering a background for one of them too...but never finished.  Embarrassed

You make me want to find that & finish it! I love how they look like they're dancing!  Cheesy

The fringe dresses are great!
