Pumpkin Leather Pedestal Buttons
Made and assembled in the USA
Available in 7/8 inch and 2 inches diameters
Pedestal Buttons are improvisational. These closures require no commitment, no sewing, and no pre-planning. Instead, they are flexible components that can transform knitted garments and accessories. To use Pedestal Buttons, unscrew the leather backing and remove the back disk from the shank. Holding the front disk (on the screw mechanism shank), work the shank gently in between the stitches of your knitwear from the front. Place the back disk of leather, smooth side out, over the screw shank on the inside of the knitwear. Screw in the backing with your fingers to secure.
These innovative screw-in "buttons" can be used not only as substitutes for conventional buttons, they may also be used to create shaping, to attach one knitted piece to another, and to baste knitted fabric so that it stays in place semi-permanently (see the Marmalade and Chocolate Collar in the Furrow pattern). Be creative.
