Have you ever had trouble finding the perfect buttons? If you sew, knit, or crochet, and are interested in making your own unique buttons for your special projects, or even if you don’t do any of those things, but are looking to get your hands into a new medium, read on.
Lisa Clarke from Polka Dot Cottage is currently doing a fabulous 5 week button making workshop on her blog. Aimed at beginners with little knowledge of polymer and few clay-related supplies at their disposal, her classes will teach you to make all of the buttons pictured above, using nothing more than three blocks of polymer clay and a few inexpensive tools.

Lesson 2: Beginner Button Class – Striped Snail Shell Buttons
Lesson 3: Beginner Button Class – Asymmetrical Striped Buttons

She still has 2 more workshop coming up, so don’t forget to subscribe to her feed – now I’m just off to find some polymer…
