Embroidered Covered Buttons


Here's a selection from my collection of Covered Buttons, presented to you in a vintage pie plate.  Quite Pretty little things I think.  The one in the center and the three on the right, are buttons I stitched myself.  The one at the top and bottom and the three on the left, I either purchased or they were presented to me as gifts.  


A button I stitched for a French Knot class long ago.  I love making French Knots so this button was quite fun to make.


Someone made this from a portion of vintage cross-stitch embroidery.


A basket....you know I love those and a bit of embroidery with pink perle cotton flowers.


A vintage cross-stitch basket. The lilacs stitched by me.


Larger view.


And another.


A cute little vintage embroidery.


And, another.  Love this one!


More French Knots!  This one also vintage.


From a different angle.


Loved making this one!


I really liked making this button....using perle cotton for the pink flowers.  Love the shaded color and the texture.


Sure did!


Another view of those purple French Knots!


And, Cross-stitches.


So...here's a quarter to compare the buttons with which I hope will give you a way to gauge
 their size.
So, there you are...just a bit of button fun!

oh this collection is impressive as seen in the pie plate, but those closeups show how pretty each and every one is. Do you have them on display. Would be a shame to hide them away. I think I like the french knotted ones best too.

Have a wonderful day Pat.

Those buttons are just beautiful, Pat. I'll bet one of them would be pretty on a Spring sweater. Lovely embroidery.

I love your embroidered buttons. They are so pretty. I'm obsessed with embroidering trees on buttons, at the moment its a cherry tree. I think a Wattle will be next. A friend wants me to make them into brooches.
A button can be made into brooch but using the brooch findings I have, a brooch cannot later be made into a button. If I make buttons, they want brooches and vice versa.
