These three (3) handmade buttons measures 1 3/4 inches in length, and 3/4 inch across. I used one of my many texturing 'tools' (or, toys, as one friend puts it...) to add the texture to a slab of clay and the results are what you see here. They've been glazed with a subtle, aged moss glaze - a favorite of mine because of the way it breaks on the texture.
They're perfect for adding interest to a hand knitted or crocheted scarf or neck warmer, and would also be great as an accent on a felted bag or purse - or, a hat!
I enjoy making buttons. I started doing them several years ago for a friend who creates wonderful felted handbags and totes as well as incredible quilted bags. She wanted something different than what she could find in the stores.
Although the buttons are washable, it’s best if you either hand wash the garment or turn it inside out and hang or block it to dry.
