Some Dorset buttons I've been learning to make when I get tired of my current project. They sure are awkward to make. People used to do this for a living!

Thank you everyone for your kind comments.
Ann, these are beautiful. You mentioned a book about them. Can you give me the name of the book please as I am very interested. I have made a few but nothing as smallor as lovely as yours.
Ann, these are beautiful! I think they are well worth your effort!
they are Brill, really love the red one
Thank you everyone. Beth, they are tricky, but I like the challenge. I'd like to get one really perfect.
I love these kind of buttons! I tried one years back and haven't made one since!! They are very tricky.
I really love this idea for buttons as I use buttons to decorate with. I am always looking for different ways to embellish things and these are over the top neat. Thanks for sharing. Hugs Elaine
working this small is tough! great work!
I don't think so. I'm no expert and only make them for fun. It was the history of them that got me interested in the first place. I don't just love needlework, I love the history of it, too.
