Four Footbal buttons made of 1/8" bamboo. These football shaped buttons are approximately 3/4" x 1". The ten holes in each button outline the stitches in a football. You can stitch them in using traditional white or using your team's colors. The holes are left empty so that you can stitch them in using own needle and yarn or embroidery thread.
These buttons are a great way to personalize garments, add color to baby items or to embellish your warm winter sports fan accessories with your own custom team colors.
When using these buttons in a place where they need to be functional, I like to fill in the holes first, then tack the button onto the garment using only a few of the holes. If you use only holes more towards the center of the button to attach it to the garment, the button functions better. You may want to use only one or two plies of the yarn to fill it in if it your yarn is super thick.
These buttons can go in the washer and the dryer, but as with most things made of natural materials, they will probably last longer if they are hand washed or if the item is dried flat.
It is important to me that each item I make is special and bamboo contributes to this as a unique material. Bamboo plywood is sustainable and is stronger than wood. Bamboo has a rich history of roles and uses in Asian mythology and culture and is even used in Chinese medicine because of its anti-bacterial properties.
Your buttons will arrive carded and will have a care card with them.
Because they are made of a natural material, the appearance of each button may slightly vary.
Please let me know if you would like to order different quantity or size than what's listed.
