Description

This pair of extra large metal buttons, are covered in hand sewn vintage embroidery. Tiny fragments of homemade table linen, which have been rescued, and given a new life and purpose.
They are brilliant for sewing onto bags or accessories as a statement decorative feature. They would make a lovely present for a textile lover, or as an original piece of haberdashery.
There are two metal covered buttons made from metal in this pack.
Each is covered with a different section from old hand embroidered table linen. Different sections of flowers flit across the surfaces in a gently faded blue embroidery thread.
Each button measures 4cm in diameter.

They will arrive wrapped in clean, pretty, recycled wrapping, as I like to reuse where possible.

They will be posted out to you as Royal Mail 2nd class which takes up to 3 days.

Inspiration

My collection of vintage hand embroideries continues to grow larger than my studio, but often they are damaged, tea stained and threadbare. Even so, I can’t bear to throw them away. These florals have a soft washed out vintage feel to them. Turning them into covered buttons is my way of giving them a new life.
