pink cosmos studio buttonscomments (2) October 11th, 2008 in gallery
studio buttons: one of a kind handmade buttons. Hand embroidered on cotton fabric using cotton embroidery floss
pink cosmos. I have made four in all. There are two with fuchsia flowers and two with pink flowers. These buttons are hand embroidered with delightful bouquets of pink cosmos.
I use a technique that I call free-hand embroidery. Numerous French knots as well as other stitches are applied to simple cotton fabric using cotton floss. I then covered a metal button with the embroidered fabric. Each mini, impressionistic “painting” takes more than an hour to create.
Each button is mounted on a card made from a wallpaper sample, faux suede, and silk fabric. It’s nice enough to frame, but you can use the button on your favorite garment as well. They are completely machine washable.
These unique buttons would look great as a set on a cardigan or individually as the closure to a top or swing jacket.
