Handmade Dorset Cross Wheel Buttons - Rainbow - Set of 7

Handmade Dorset Cross Wheel Buttons - Rainbow - Set of 7
Love this


This is a set of 7 buttons in the colours of the rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.

They are handmade using the traditional Dorset Button craft. This technique was one way of making buttons before the Industrial Revolution. The Dorset buttons are so lovely that I am happy to be one of those who are continuing this tradition but combining it with modern colours and colour schemes.

They are made using a ring (in this case plastic) and wrapping and weaving thread round and through the ring. I use embroidery thread (floss).

I love making these and trying out different colour combinations.

These buttons are made using a 100% cotton multicoloured thread, iRed, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.

They are approximately 1.5 cms (half an inch)in size.

These buttons can be used simply as buttons on a garment or sewn or stuck as embelishments on clothing, accessories and jewellery.

I would recommend hand-washing if used on garments, however in a trial I have washed at 40 degrees and then tumble-dried a similar button 3 times with no effect.

PLEASE NOTE these buttons will be made for you so please give an extra two days on top of the normal delivery time.
