A set of Dorset Buttons

In my last post I showed you some buttons I have been making. Well, I have made enough for a set - a set of four that is. I suppose it is still a set if there are two different designs?

But I have also made a set of 4 of the same colour. This set is made using a variegated thread that has reds, oranges, and purples.

And here are the ones I have made so far. In this picture I have placed a Dorset button that is the 'normal' size I usually make. The little buttons are just under 1.5cms.

I am making these for the Handm@de Winchester fair on the 4th July. I hope that you can make it then as it will be a lovely day. The Hat Fair is also taking place about then and last year I had a wonderful day.

If however, you cannot make it and would like some of my handmade buttons then contact me on

Thank you very much (you have to say that in an Elvis way).

Very pretty. I do like those variegated (sp!) ones. All the best with the Winchester fair.
