Two-Hole Buttons! *

Buttons are so much fun to design and create! Heather's button passion goes back to 2003. She is still on a mission to populate the world with contemporary glass buttons.

NEW: Includes a video!

Note: The Trimlett Two-Hole Button Mandrels used in this tutorial are sold separately and available here on my website.

Photos below are examples of: Front Cover, Table of Contents, Sample Page & mandrels.

Heather designed her Two-Hole Button tutorial for students who are unable to take a class with her personally.

Note from Heather: "Just imagine that you are in my studio for a private lesson. Here is your chance to "watch" me work, and have me "talk" you through the process of honing your buttonmaking skills."

Goals for this tutorial:

  • Get comfortable with my Two-Hole Button Mandrel.
  • Learn to make a narrow touchdown for the center of a two-hole button.
  • Learn to melt the ridges in smoothly.
