Christmas Dorset Button Angel – ‘How To Make’

Here’s the first in a new ‘How To Make’ Series sharing traditional techniques – textile workshops from the comfort of your own home. Learn how to make a Christmas ‘Dorset Button’ Angel & Tree and a ‘Handmade Cord’ to display them with.

Each YouTube comes with full instructions & requirements/materials lists.

There’s still time to make some before Christmas. Please share your work with the hashtag #arnoldsatticworkshops so I can see your beautiful creations.

You can see how to make a classic Dorset button in previous post.

For more inspiration, check out the Full Collection from YouTube.

Blogger Ambassador for The ICHF Creative Craft Shows

Exciting times ahead! I’m honoured to have been invited to be a Blogger Ambassador for The ICHF Creative Craft Shows – This means lots of filming at their Nationwide events and creating ‘craft & stitching’ content to share with you on YouTube.

I’m also creating some ‘Make and Take’ style project videos for you and the wider Craft Show Community to enjoy. The first is a Festive version of a Dorset Button.

Watch this space!
