Finally finished my second tutorial on Dorset Buttons. Had lots of images of all the samples I made and so I thought I would share them with you all.
Got a bit carried away and kept making more!
Open Weave around a Curtain Ring, a Christmas tree decoration perhaps
I like these ones – On a nice cardigan or maybe a brooch.
I think I have got the Dorset button bug now. I may even branch out and do some colourful ones. I found a really nice booklet which gives intricate details of how to make many of the traditional dorset buttons including the High Tops and Singletons.
I am planning on integrating some big ones into some of my embroidery pieces next. Have a look here.
