Day 90 : Scarab
Today's button is in two of my favourite colours, well I like all colours, but I do often go back to purple, indigo and green. The pale purple is worked using some needle lace stitches, but worked directly on the covered button, as opposed to working on a template and then adding it to the button. The surround for the 'scarab' is a courrone - basically a bird's eye button with a large hole!
I've covered a large ring with fabric from an old skirt, adding a little bit of extra fabric to pad out the centre - and the thread is a cotton perle No 12.
