I’m really interested in developing some ideas for thrift crafts workshops, my Dorset buttons are up there on the list but I made this earlier in the week from a very large stash of buttons which I inherited. It reminds me of a lighthouse, so a bit nautical but not obviously so – my seaside home will not be looking like a tacky beach shop! It was a bit of a job threading up, on mercerised cotton, and weaving into the pull cord, but I think it’s fun! And totally no-cost to make. I will post up some of the christmas gifts I have been making soon, once the recipients have them!
