Zwirnknopfe Button Journal Kit GBSJN-ZW19

£ 14.99 each
  • Description

These ring buttons from continental Europe are made in a slightly different way to the English Dorset button. This variation in technique results in designs which are quite different.

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 6 different button designs
  • Threads and button moulds in two sizes 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 traditional wrapping and stitching techniques to anchor the threads. Although the original buttons were made using only white threads, these buttons can be very striking worked in more than one colour. Today, 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!

Kit contains

  • 12 ring button moulds (aluminium) in two sizes,
  • 2 skeins of perle cotton (colours may vary),
  • tapestry needle,
  • printed fabric journal
  • and full instructions
