Button Pin / Button-shaped pin

You may have experienced your shirt button falling off unexpectedly at school or in the office where there are no threads or needles available to sew it back. You are left with no choice but to clutch your shirt or put on a jacket to prevent yourself from baring your chest or belly. To relieve you from such embarrassing inconvenience, I have designed the Button Pin, which combines the functions of both a button and a pin. It can be pinned to the washing tag if not in use. But if needed, you can just take off the Button Pin. Then pin it to place and you are ready to button up your shirt instantly again.
