I'll be writing two blog posts this evening - one over on the One Button a Week blog as well as here - both slightly different...
Today's is a new video - with a little bit of an explanation of how I have made my button for this week, but more importantly, one of the methods I use to add a ring shank and backing to a button.
Ring buttons are supposed to be "sew-throughs" of course. However, if you are working a Dorset tree, or posy, there will be spaces, that can look odd - a beautiful landscape and then the wrong colour fabric showing through, kinda ruins it. And you know, I also hate it when I've made a lovely ring button and someone sews it on badly, ruining my work.
So, here's one solution.
At the end of the video there are some community contributions for the first week of the challenge - pop over to that blog for pictures and more info about that.
Stay safe and well all.
