Day 123 : Reel

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 123 : Reel

Day 123 : Reel

Today's button actually makes me think of strawberry laces candy, but as it could be made in a different colour combination, I decided not to go with that! 

I've used the outer ring from the No 45 stacker mould, covered with No 8 perle cotton. This centre is a silk fingerloop braid - the "round lace of 5 loops" from my book Tak V Bowes Departed. These braids were known as laces during the medieval period, so just re-enforcing that candy reference :)

Size: 37mm / 1 7⁄16" / 58L
