Dorset Button

Today it is Dorset buttons-----which I really love doing.
I had made some of these a long time ago and had forgotten how lovely they are.
This is the basic design but there are litterally oodles of other designs that you can do..in fact you are only limited by your imagination.
They make gorgeous brooches but this one will go into my pink and white theme.




I have been busy making more toggles as well.

Very pretty, Doreen, and just perfect for your pink and white theme. I was introduced to dorset buttons not long ago, and have been thinking of doing some, but not yet started. Yours is so nice!

All your buttons are so beautiful Doreen - they look good enough to eat!! They will certainly make a beautiful display.

I've never tried making a dorset button but have definitely admired them. Yours is a great example!
