The first Dorset buttons were High tops, made on a pasted fabric base then embroidered.
The craft of making them was lost with the invention of machines, but , re-discovered in the 1970’s.

 

Singletons are very easy to make, using a ring.
This is covered with fabric that is padded

 

 

Bird’s eye buttons can be made in two ways. They are a circle of blanket stitches over either a roll of muslin, or a ring of thread.
