Day 162 : Federation

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 162: Federation

Day 162 : Federation.

Today's button is very much an experiment - playing with different ways of wrapping a triangular shape. There are a few gaps, I'm not too worried about those, I don't think that you really notice them unless pointed out. 

That's the thing about wrapped buttons. Many people try to put too much thread onto the mould - hoping to cover ever single part. Usually, you will get a much neater design with a little space between the wraps - not too much of course, but enough to stop you placing too many wraps. Too many wraps can cause tension issues and you'll find that threads end up overlapping. 

And the name? It makes me think of the Star Trek badge a bit ;)

Size: 25mm / 1" / 40L
