Thankyou!
They are handbag mirrors so they are pretty small - not sure of exact sizes but easily small enough to fit in the palm of your hand

Oh, yeah! Are these the kind made with a button machine?  They're just such a great way to use embroidery and it's nice that your lovely work is protected.

They aren't made with a button machine I buy mirrors designed for craft projects that slot together but they are pretty similar to the button ones

Thanks again for your feedback Smiley

Oh I love these!!  I bought a button machine and my fabric is too thick for the machine so I can't do that with them!!

May I ask if you can buy these online somewhere?  I looked up 'craft mirrors' but none of them seem to look like yours!!
