The Dorset Button lends itself to be the perfect handmade finishing touch for a special garment or accessory. The same or contrasting yarn can be used to pick out detail to complement your piece.
TJFrog’s bespoke ‘design and make service’ includes fully understanding your initial requirement, exploring yarn options & design with you and a sample button before the final buttons are handmade.

Amanda's Dorset Button Cushion designed by Debbie Abrahams
Amanda had knitted this gorgeous Debbie Abrahams cushion in these wonderful Rowan Cotton Glace colours and was looking for some buttons to go on the back.
TJFrog produced four samples buttons using the same yarn as the cushion. After Amanda had made her choice five buttons, in two designs but utilising the same colour way, were produced and added to the cushion. A simple but very effective addition.
