These tags are a great way to personalize or sign garments, add color to baby items or to embellish your accessories with a special colorful touch. Sew these onto garments as usable buttons or embellish your finished knits with just one as a signature tag.
These tags measure 3/4" square and are cut from 1/8" thick bamboo. The twelve holes are left empty so you can embroider them with your own needle and yarn or embroidery thread. There are many ways you can fill in the twelve holes. For some examples, please see the listing photos. You may want to use only one or two plies of the yarn to fill it in if it your yarn is super thick. A size 26 tapestry needle is recommended for stitching the 3/4" buttons.
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. Bamboo plywood is sustainable and is stronger than wood. Your buttons won't be indestructible but can withstand more than a needle gauge made of birch. Bamboo has a rich history of roles and uses in Asian mythology and culture and is even used in Chinese medicine because of its anti-bacterial properties.
