Day 62 : Anniversary

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 62: Anniversary

Day 62 : Anniversary

As usual, my Monday button is being posted late in the day, thanks to all of the work things that need sorting!

Today's button celebrates our 35th wedding anniversary. It is supposed to be 'coral' so I figured coral coloured - aka rose gold - will do ;) 

I've used faux leather for the padded heart and to wrap around the ring. This is the first time I've tried faux leather using the traditional technique - usually kid leather is used - and it worked just fine. This is a nice quality faux leather too to be fair. I've couched the metallic threads using a madeira copper embroidery thread from my stash - had it literally years - probably 20, as I have a tassel made with the thread. The embroidery is covering a No 3 mould, and the outer ring is a plastic ring I picked up somewhere... And, still resting my thumb as I should!

Size: 33mm / 1 1⁄4" / 50L
