How to Make a Dorset Button Brooch (a very simple tutorial)
So, my iPhoto crashed this week, and in the process of completely reorganizing my bloated photo inventory, I found this little brooch. It’s from something I worked on earlier this year, and forgot all about.

But it’s actually kinda cute, isnt’ it? It would look nice on a knit hat or scarf. Here’s the simplest of tutorials for how to make it.

    The Harder Part:

    Make six Dorset buttons, using my tutorial from a while back. You’ll need five smaller ones and one larger one.

    The Super Easy Part:

    2. Arrage the five smaller buttons in a circle, so they all touch at the edges.

    3. Glue the larger button over the center of the smaller buttons. Let the glue set.

    4. Cut a couple of felt leaves, if you like, and glue them on the back of the flower. Glue a circle of felt over the back as well, to cover up the center.

    5. Glue on a pin back. And voila!

Wow! I love this. I really like the look of dorset buttons and have made a few. Even put one on a bracelet, but never thought of using more than one. Thank you!
