I have to say this is a fantastic book!
As a crafter, crocheter & knitter
I love buttons.

I don't know why but I haven't made many buttons in the past
but I know I'll be making a lot in the future.

Why worry about finding buttons for your next project
when you can make them so they'll
match exactly and be a unique addition to your project.

This book teaches you loads of different techniques
to make multiple different designs.
The other brilliant thing about this book
is with the techniques you learn you can then
design your own buttons.
As they say the world will be your oyster!
The book is split into sections;
  • Crocheted Beaded Buttons
  • Embroidered Buttons
  • Twisted & Frayed
  • Crocheted Buttons
  • Wooden Buttons
  • Modelling Clay Buttons

The book is packed full of beautifully descriptive pictures,
diagrams and instructions.
Everything is clear and easy to understand.
Whether you are a beginner or just wanting to learn more
techniques you are sure to learn so much from this book.
The use of colours is amazing but you don't need to worry
if you like plainer buttons.

All you need to do is just alter the colour mix to your choice.
You learn how to make all sorts of shapes and styles of buttons.
The step by step instructions are clear and with the clear
pictures as well they are easy to follow.

I can't believe so much has been packed into this book!
You'll be making buttons for years to come
and with a professional look and finish
that will make you the envy of all your crafty friends.
I love this book!

It offers so much for any crafter.
Why don't you check it out and start making your own
personal buttons.
