The eleven holes in these sweet anchor buttons are left empty so that you can embroider into them with your own needle and yarn or embroidery thread. These anchor buttons are a great way to personalize garments or embellish accessories with a special nautical touch. When using these buttons in a place where they need to be functional, it?s a good idea to 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 will function better.
Buttons are made of bamboo and are 1/8 in. thick. Choose between 3/4 in (19 mm) or 7/8 in. (23 mm) diameters.
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.
