Spotty Dog Designs
Barbara AKA Spotty Dog Designs makes traditional Dorset Buttons...never heard of a Dorset Button? these were buttons all made by hand and are what were used before the mass-produced buttons we are so familiar with today. Starting with a metal ring, lengths of yarn are wound round and round the ring; then 'spokes' are created before weaving the yarn over and under the spokes in the most incredible and intricate designs and colours. The finished button is so versatile... use of course as a traditional button on clothing, as a brooch, hair clip, or they can be stitched together in lengths to make a variety of decorative items.
