Day 78 : Pillow

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 78: Pillow

Day 78: Pillow

I am so sorry that today's button has been posted so late! I had fully intended to schedule this post so that it would go live as I was doing the live Hochanda shows, but prep time ran away with me last night.

Today's button is a soft button, made from a length of tape woven on our tape loom . The tape loom was the feature of this morning's show, so there was a method in my madness last night. The mixed colours in the weave are because I painted the warp before weaving, trying something a little different that still needs perfecting. The green is decorative stitching to cover the seam. 

No solid mould - instead, this is stuffed with cotton.

Size (across the straight edge): 20mm / 3⁄4" / 31L
