"50 Heirloom Buttons to Make"


I have been looking for this book for quite awhile. I tried to buy a new copy of it for the last nine months but have had no luck. I finally was able to get a used copy that is in very good condition. It is a wonderful book with very good directions on making all kinds of buttons.

The above are "Shirtwaist buttons" and are made on a brass ring.


These buttons are "Dorset buttons" and are also made using a ring.


These buttons above are "Cluster buttons". They are crocheted over a half round button mold that has been covered with fabric.
The book has many different types of buttons including Needle-Lace buttons, Braid buttons, Crocheted buttons, Fabric and Ribbon buttons and Frog closures.

I tried the Dorset buttons, once. Wasn't too successful with that. The cluster buttons looks great!
