Chapter 7 Simple Button making

This chapter is concerned with making buttons from various 3d cores.

I used curtain rings in different sizes for my Dorset button samples and must admit I got a bit carried away doing them.

The sizes range from 2cm up to 4cm.

The composite buttons are made from bought 'easy cover buttons' to pieces of foam and yet another 'dorset button' made with fabric wound round large curtain ring and wool buttonhole stitched around a smaller one.

and finally my toggle samples made from straws, centre from cotton reels or wound fabric.
