1920s picturebook pins

When I came across a lovely children's book from 1923 called Honey Bear, written by Dixie Wilson and beautifully illustrated by Maginel Wright Barney, I had to buy it. I love sharing vintage books with my son. However it was in a very bad state, so I decided to cut it up and re-use it in other projects. It felt terrible making the first cut... then liberating!

These six 1-inch (25mm) pinback badges are now listed in my Etsy shop. The colours are rather richer than they appear in the photos. I love re-using things in different contexts and the badges draw attention to little details. Look out for more Honey Bear images and colours in future projects!
