Make Your Own Buttons

I've been working on a new little cardi for my daughter. I've been trying to get it done for the summer despite being busy with various things including what currently seems to be the worlds most demanding 4 year old - I'm hoping it's a phase. 

It was designed to go with her new 'best dress' and it's finally finished, I am again. The button dilemma. I've delved into my my stash, but..... nothing. Nothing that will match, tone or even remotely go with the lovely unusual 'Bluebell' colour I've used.'s what I came up with. A crochet button. Made with...wait for less than....

a humble Roman Blind Ring

and yarn of your choice.

....and I thought it'd be nice to share it with you. From what I can see it's very similar to the style that is known as the 'Dorset Button', although in this case it's crocheted.

I've used DK yarn and a 2mm crochet hook to make it nice and firm. Want to see how it's done?
