4.0 out of 5 stars Heirloom buttons
An excellent book with copious ilustrations and good working instructions to create your own buttons. All levels of ability are catered for so that you can progress at your own speed and try new and different techniques including needle lace and crocheted buttons. The chapter on frogging showed how to create perfect closures for period costumes and new coats etc.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition has no colour illustrations at all
I'm very disappointed that this ebook has NO colour photographs or illustrations in it. Even the cover is black and white. It's nigh on impossible to view the buttons in any detail because of this.

5.0 out of 5 stars 50 Heirloom Buttons to Make, 3 Oct 2012

This review is from: 50 Heirloom Buttons to Make (Paperback)
A gem of a book! Beautifully photographed and clearly illustrated with easy-to-follow instructions. The text is well written, providing both know-how and historical background. This book would certainly appeal to those with a keen interest in vintage clothing or historical costume. Textile and needlecraft enthusiasts can explore various button making techniques including, Dorset & Leek buttons, braid, crochet and ribbon buttons, as well as frogging. As the title suggests, the emphasis is on traditional button making skills, rather than making buttons from craft clay, which is exactly what I was after!
