Day 34 : Marion

One Button a Day by Gina Barrett - Day 34: Marion

Day 34: Marion

Today's button is based on one in my collection created by Marion Howitt, one of the leading people in reviving Dorset button making skills. She has been making Dorset buttons long before the internet was even a thing and so really it is thanks to her and her small booklet that so many of us even know what a Dorset button is. 

This is made over an old brass ring that I had in my stash and perle No 12 cotton.

Size: 26mm / just over 1" / 40L
