Day 19 : Iced Star
This button mixes a lot of traditional thread wrapping, weaving and needlework techniques. Mixing up the techniques is something that was done historically.
The grappé along the edge is often seen to cover areas that were not covered by the main wrapping, or to support threads that would otherwise slip. It is really a blanket stitch, and seen in just about every form of needlework from lace making, embroidery, plain sewing, buttons and other forms of passementerie, and it has many different names depending on the discipline. It is a great stitch to learn how to do well.
I've used No 12 perle and a No 4 button mould. There's a fair bit of thread on this, so the size has increased a little.
Size: 32mm / just over 1 ¼" / 50L
