Thought I'd better start a new thread, here you go Gem this is what I meant
by making the buttons...you just put a loop on the back to stitch them to
clothes, but they make good earrings etc too. I've searched several pages
now and can't find any online instructions on how to make them. However I
did see an article on making them in one of last years Handwoven magazine
March/April 2004 issue number 119. If anyone has this issue the
instructions are on page 72/73/74


Cheers....Cher

library to have a look at the instructions. )

I doubt that you'd still be looking, but just in case the new issue of Jane
Austin Knits has an article that would help, and the digital copy is on sale:
