I shop for my doll buckles (look for children’s or ladies sandals with straps with 1/2" to 5/8" sized buckles – remove and reuse) at second hand stores. Purses provide leather for shoes plus small D-rings and buckles. Shop the children’s and infant section for small prints. You can find a large section of knits and cottons print size appropriate also. I go shopping on days they run specials – like stuff your bag full for $2.00. Happy hunting!
