Shari's long time love and passion for butterflies inspired her newest ornament creation and is pleased to introduce you to "Batteryfly"! ©
Used baseball leather is precisely cut to form the wings which are hand stitched and joined together. A miniture 2.5" replica of our 6" ornament bat "Batty About Baseball" is used to make the body of the batterfly. Waxed leather cording used to sew baseballs is them formed to create the tentacles. You can choose from red or blue or a combination of red and blue stitching. You may also contact us on our contact page if you have a special thread color choice and we will do our best to meet your request.
Batterfly comes with a waxed leather cord loop for hanging.
DISCLAIMER: Each piece of our artwork and the leather used in our jewelry pieces are hand crafted, hand cut and hand stitched. We use "used" baseballs, both the leather and the seams. Each piece is genuinely unique in and of itself because of the varied wear and tear on the balls. Some products might have faint words or lettering on the leather from the manufacturing company or the organization where the balls were played and may also sport some "beauty marks", such as scuffs, scratches and grass stains. You can expect that there may be some frayed threads in your piece of jewelry from cutting the seams but this will not unravel. Cutting leather and threads will create a masterpiece of it's own making it a one of a kind piece. We also use "new" genuine cowhide that has been professionally tanned and processed for the purpose of making baseballs. For instance, our "Home Is Where The Heart Is" and our "Christ In The Home" are both produced from this new leather.
The "used" baseballs we use in our products have been rescued from going in the dumpsters and landfills and donated by a multitude of baseball organizations at a variety of levels across the county and abroad. With Scott being a College Baseball Coach and a member of local, regional, national and international baseball organizations, our rescue efforts are well received and donations are abundant. Thank you to all who have contributed and continue to contribute to our labor of love.
