Recycled wool into primitive folk art

I love to work with wool.Recycling old wool clothes is something I try to do anytime I can.Last month I taught my doll club how to dye recycled wool. This meeting we looked at ways of using the wool we dyed.
I made a cat and three dolls.I am very into primitive folk art.I think I got the look I was after using the old wool and old buttons.

Two of the dolls have wings cut from a scrap of blanket.All the stitching is on the outside of the doll.I really like that look for this doll.I also like using mismatched buttons for eyes.
