These owl buttons are a great way to personalize garments or embellish accessories with a special custom color.
The holes in each button are left empty so that you can embroider the owl's eyes into them with your own needle and yarn or embroidery thread.
They are available in 2 sizes and will come carded with 4 buttons. The 2 sizes available are 1/2" x 3/4" and 3/4"x 1".
When using these buttons in a place where they need to be functional, 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 (the center of the owl's eyes are perfect for this). These holes are pretty small, so 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.
Approximate Size: 1/8” thick, available in 1/2" x 3/4" and 3/4"x 1"
Because they are made of a natural material, the appearance of each button may slightly vary. Please note that the buttons pictured are the larger buttons, the smaller size have less eye holes.
