Mrs YS is a really keen knitter & a couple of years ago I made her a ‘giant’ button to attach to a knitted hat. Through her network of knitting friends, more requests came in for similar ones & I eventually started listing some on a UK crafts selling site, along with some other wares. The bit of income keeps me in glue and abrasives!
The photographs show just a few of the many buttons I have turned out. The first one is one of the biggest I did. It’s about 12” diameter and went tothe USA to be used, I believe, as a decorative wall hanging.
