Fun with Dolls and Beads

Playing with dolls and beads seems like return to second childhood! But I just could'nt resist making these cute "wawas" or dolly wollies with knots and beads. So please indulge my silliness for one post, ok? :)

The heads are made from monochrome old Chinese and Indonesian glass beads.For the feet and hands I use seedbeads with a couple of ancient trade wind beads for the hands of the left dolly. The flat knot is used to make the doll's bodies. I got the pattern from a Chinese knotting book.
