Thread Button Forms / Death Head Button Forms
Thread button forms were used to make cloth or thread covered buttons as documented in Norm Fuss' book (see below). The drill bits used to make these had a guide in the center which left a hole. The center hole is necessary when making "death head" or "basket weave" thread covered buttons. Directions to make Death Head Buttons are in Death Head Buttons: Their Use & Construction by Norm Fuss (see below).

Death Head Buttons: Their Use & Construction
By Norman H. Fuss. Thread buttons are found profusely in art, extant garments and store advertisements of the 18th century. Norman Fuss, a longtime independent researcher and costumer, brings together a well-illustrated and informative book that provides concise instructions on making a thread wrapped button in a true 18th century fashion as well as providing the reader with documentation and insight as to the use of these buttons on the clothing of men (and yes, women). The step by step directions are easy to follow and with wood button molds and silk twist (above and below) you are on your way to making your own thread buttons. 5.5x8.5 inch softcover with 23 pages of information and images.
