More Dorset Buttons

More Dorset Buttons are being made each week and
they are getting bigger and more ornate. 
These ones were made by Bev.
Lots of beading and sequins are being added,
I wonder who is influencing the BLING!
( me, never!).
HERE is a good article for making a Dorset Button,
if you haven't tried yet.
I stitch using the stitches of the blanket stitch inside the
hoop ( blanket stitch then twist the stitches on the 
hoop into the middle).
 Rather than wrapping the spokes it still
gives you great effect all the same but you need to wrap tightly.
Enjoy having a go.
