Day 63 : Tulip

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 63: Tulip

Day 63: Tulip

Of course, another embroidered button! This one really is based on 18th century examples. The ground fabric is some antique silk ribbon that I bought some time ago - it had (sadly) been taken out of sample books somewhere along the line so every piece (all different designs) have glue marks somewhere. I thought at the time they'd be nice for one-off buttons, but hadn't tried yet. It does really suit the look of the Georgian buttons.

I used stranded cotton for the embroidery - it should have been silk really, but I don't often use silk in such a bright pink. The mould is a No 4.

Size: 31mm / 1 1⁄4" / 50L
