Working embroidery onto a ring button has a long history - after all, that’s what a Dorset wheel is!
When the foundation button is wrapped using the zwirnknopfe method, the dense spacing of the threads lends itself to embroidery perfectly. In this kit you will find instructions and materials to make 10 different designs, all using the same basic zwirnknopfe foundation.
This kit also includes a printed fabric Little Button Journal© - a bit of clever folding and you have a permanent place to keep your first button creations!
- Kit contains instructions for 10 different button designs
- Threads and button moulds are included
- Printed fabric Little Button Journal© to keep your creations!
Textile button making can be quite addictive. More often than not, makers want to keep their first buttons as a record of their success. The printed fabric Little Button Journal© included with this kit allows you to do this, making up a sampler for future reference. Printed with drawings and snippets of text about buttons and button making, it also serves as a ground for further creative journaling.
The buttons in this kit use a single base wrap which is then embroidered to create the repeating patterns. By adding a little bit of extra wrapping along the edge of the ring, stunning buttons can be created easily. These buttons can be used to enhance not only textile projects such as clothing and home décor, but made into jewellery, as embellishments and so much more!
