This is a set of 4 buttons in turquoise and pink.

They are handmade using the traditional Dorset Button craft. Dorset buttons were a way of making buttons before the Industrial Revolution.

They are made using a ring (in this case plastic) and wrapping and weaving thread round and through the ring. I use embroidery thread (floss).

I love making these and trying out different colour combinations.

These buttons are made using a 100% cotton thread. I think pink and turquoise is such an exciting colour combination.


They are approximately 1.5 cms (half an inch)in size.

These buttons can be used simply as buttons on a garment or sewn or stuck as embelishments. The final two photo is an example of how the buttons can be used on garments. One is a modern cardigan, the other is a Regency dress. These buttons can be traditional and contemporary depending on the colours used and the clothes you choose.
.

I would recommend hand-washing if used on garments, however in a trial I have washed at 40 degrees and then tumble-dried a similar button 3 times with no effect.
