These are 2 large buttons each covered with a hand embroidered flower - taken from the edge of a vintage tablecloth that someone hadn’t finished embroidering.
The background fabric is pink linen and the flowers are nicely embroidered in blue and a variegated purple/mauve. Both have yellow centres – different colours and style from each other but these are a good ‘pair’.
Each button is about 4cm across – just over 1½”, especially good for a coat or jacket.
The button base is white plastic and they have shanks for attaching them to your garment – or bag, or hat or whatever you fancy.........
I make lots of things out of reclaimed tablecloths and other lovely vintage fabrics (see my other listings) and just don’t like to waste any little bit.
Hand washing is best but all the fabrics have been through the washing machine on a gentle wash first.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me – I can also send more pictures.
