this listing is for one 1 1/2 inch wide covered button, free hand embroidered in 2 ply french cotton colorfast twist in dove grey on white belgian linen with a metal shank back.
i made these small embroideries as an extension of an ongoing project of collecting and documenting my favorite haircuts. each portrait is stitched by hand from memory and has it's own unique personality. there are no patterns so no two are ever alike. each button is truly one of a kind.
my buttons may be sewn to a garment and gently hand washed or covered with foil before dry cleaning. i wear mine as a brooch by slipping a simple safety pin from the underside of my jacket, thru the shank of the button. i also like to slide a button onto an length of ribbon and wear it as a choker or pendant.
each button comes in a hand stamped cotton gift bag with a ribbon tag.
