Two more ....

Cutwork button - half of the covering fabric is cut away
and replaced by another fabric - of course
it has to be "buttonholed" at first -
and then embellished with French knots, bullions and two chain stitches, two,
more cannot  be placed on this 2,9 cm large button


A little round hole cut into the fabric
some embellishments, tiny, tiny.



Buttons can look like that
and the two rolls are called toggles

  3. Your buttons are just gorgeous - all that tiny detailing! When you visited my blog you mentioned it was brave to cut up books... I buy them at the thrift store specifically to cut up, so it's not too hard - I look for ones with great photos or colors or blocks of type knowing that I'll be cutting and pasting. It's really fun!
