Day 91 : Estrella

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 91 : Estrella

Day 91 : Estrella

I don't know about you, but working from home is messing up my routine a bit. Great that I get up and start the paperwork in peace and quiet (which I have a fair bit to do) but then I forget some of the other morning jobs. Like remembering to actually post up today's button!

This one is thread wrapped in an un-traditional way and has quite a lot of grappé stitching. I've also wrapped areas - a technique that my German button making friends refer to as gorl - it appears on quite a few early 19th century buttons from Germany.

I've used a No 4 mould and perle No 12.

Size: just over 30mm / 1 3⁄16" / 49L
