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
