I’ve made some machine embroidered buttons too and think that they make a good feature.

Enjoy. If you find the instructions a bit confusing, give me a shout. We had an instructor so could demonstrate, as I got a bit confused with the weaving, but then maybe that’s just me   0_0

King Charles I wore two shirts at his execution (so he wouldn't shiver and seem like he was scared) and they were closed at the neck by Dorset buttons, although that version had wire rims, not plastic!

@Lowena I seem to remember you were in need of shirt buttons recently. Make enough little Dorset buttons and you could replace a whole set on his shirt.

@ Iminei I machined them on a larger piece of fabric and then cut round.
