Buttons: Incorporate NY and the Twin Towers in Your Sweater

The item, "Dress It Up New York," features buttons for sewing projects, like clothing or bags. The buttons are NY-themed and include a taxi, apple, NYC skyline, shopping bag, playbill, etc, and include a Twin Towers tribute featuring Never Forget and a flag. This an example of a craft object that shows the influence of September 11th. As I've state previously, September 11th's impact not only included the tragic loss of lives, destruction of property, terrorism policy setter, and world perspective changer but also brought influence to every form of American material goods. This influence varies in form, ranging from tribute or commemorative to donation-based (a portion of the proceeds benefiting a group or organization associated with September 11th).
