After a Summer of not making much, I have finally made something and listed it too. These red & white polka dot hair snaps are now available from my etsy shop. Made using a very cute red & white polka dot ribbon but using exactly the same technique I use to make my Dorset Buttons. So although the 3 buttons featured in this post look different they are made in the same way.
This photo shows one of the backgrounds I am using for my etsy shop. It is from a 1950s girls' annual.
These yellow and brown buttons are for a custom order. They are now hair snaps.
And this final photo is of two I made this morning. I used a gorgeous variegated thread. I think these are destined for hair grips too - either snaps or bobby pins (as they say in the USA).
At the moment I am working on some incorporating using seed beads, so I will keep you posted.
