Item details

Handmade ceramic pencil buttons are a golden yellow topped with a pink eraser and a silver band. The point is a light wood tone and tipped in black, with fine detail work applied with a tiny brush. Great way to add a little fun to clothing.

I confess, I'm the girl who loves to buy school supplies each year, even though I have a stash. I'm the girl who walks into an office supply store and closes my eyes to take a deep breath of heavenly paper/pencil smells. Is it any wonder I had to paint these???

Ceramic pencil buttons would be a fun way for a teacher to dress up a plain shirt or jumper, and they'd be darling on a little girl's dress. How about an ABC wall hanging with a button to represent the letter P.

Listing is for ONE pencil button measuring 3/4-inch high x 1/2-inch wide x 1/8-inch thick

ONE Handmade Ceramic Pencil Buttons, Back to School Gift for Quilters Teachers, Children's Clothing, Notions Embellishments, Teacher Gift

Buttons feature:
Two holes for sewing
Made of kiln fired ceramic clay
NO silk screening or decals used

Front and sides of these buttons have a high gloss, durable finish. Buttonholes are a consistent width for easy machine sewing because I hate breaking needles. Back is unfinished.

Handmade from start to finish of ceramic clay by One Busy Lady and Six Great Kids. Each is shaped, dried, smoothed, painted, fired, glazed, and fired again for a bright, beautiful, strong button. The whole process can take up to 10 days from start to finish. Because these are hand made, no two are exactly alike.

Buttons are machine washable, but I recommend turning your garment inside out or placing garment in a pillow case before washing just to be safe.

Feel free to convo me if you have questions.

Have a beautiful day!
