Day 70 : Bamboo

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 70 : Bamboo

Day 70 : Bamboo

Well, I have to be honest, this isn't really what I had in my head - although if you were to look at my initial sketch, it is really close! I wanted to incorporate sheer layers to look a bit watery - which doesn't make much sense I know - and that did not work and I cut it away. Ah well. 

I've used the  variegated No 12 perle for the leaves. It shows what variegated threads are really good at. Underneath all that padding (there's a few layers) is a No 3 mould.

The thumb is improving slowly, and I'm thinking I might try a wrapped button again at the weekend... just in case you are all getting tired of embroidery :)

Size: 28mm / 1 1⁄16" / 44L
