Create 20 unique, shaped fabric buttons for use as embellishments or accessories.

Learn to make 20 button designs using fabric as an embellishment to a garment or as a piece of jewellery or accessory. Gina Barrett uses techniques such as stitching, embroidery and beading, and provides shaped templates for those projects where the reader may need more assistance.

The buttons are all worked at a small size, so will require limited materials and thread for a polished finish.

There are no complex button-making techniques here; all the buttons can be created by the reader at home, following Gina's straightforward instructions and stitch diagrams.
