Day 76 : Muddle

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 76 : Muddle

Day 76 : Muddle

I do hope that everyone is keeping well. Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Today's button has a linen ground that is the edge of a piece of fabric I marbled quite a few years ago. The areas weren't really dark enough to use, but I do have a habit of keeping small pieces of fabric, usually with the intention to use in mixed media. What the picture doesn't show - and believe me, I tried to get a good photo - is that there are very pale yellows and pinks and more lines in the area that I haven't embroidered. But they are so pale, this is without doubt a button that looks better in person.

The embroidery is with No 12 perle, and the button mould is a No 4.

Size: 32mm / 1 1⁄4" / 50L
