Buttons are found everywhere - either as fastenings or simply as a decorative device. The perfect button can transform a handcrafted piece into something really special, and change a mass-produced shirt or cardigan into a truly unique item.


With 'The Button Maker' you can make knitted, crochet, felted and knotted buttons as well as buttons using clay, polymer clay, fabric, beads, and natural materials such as wood and shells. Each technique is carefully explained with step-by-step instructions and photographs of each stage, while the projects detail a range of different ideas for you to put into practice. Try making a traditional Dorset button, a knitted bobble or natural wood toggle. Every buttonhole deserves the best button - and this book will teach you everything you need to know to create the most beautiful hand-crafted buttons.
