Dorset Buttons with a Twist!
10 button designs, inspired by 1940s vintage buttons.

This PDF book has 60 pages in total including a section on tools, threads, suppliers and sources, and how to make a shank. Each project is a piece of wearable art, including a brooch, hair slide, shawl pin, choker, scarf ring, bracelet, pendant, key ring, zip pull and a button.

Each design has written instructions, including how to make your button into wearable art, and lots of colour photos. I wrote it as a follow up to 'Dorset Button Accessories' so it isn't a how to guide for Dorset buttons in general. But if you're handy with a needle you should be fine, even with no experience in making buttons.

This is a great way to learn a new skill, or expand on an established talent. I have to say though, these buttons are even more addictive than traditional Dorset buttons. You have been warned!
