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
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.
