Day 65 : Briar

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 65: Briar

Day 65: Briar

Today's button has an inked background - I used an ink blending tool and an ordinary ink pad. So, it will not be waterproof as such, but that's ok, I'm hardly going to wash these! The design is actually loosely based on a pretty metal button I saw somewhere and drew up in one of my sketchbooks.I think it still looks quite 18th century though, so decided to add the classic curved satin stitch edging that is seen on so many buttons from that period.

I've used ordinary cotton stranded embroidery thread, and a No 3 mould.

Size: 26mm / 1" / 40L
