Day 108 : Nodulous

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 108: Nodulous

Day 108 : Nodulous

I like this button! It's a sort of knobby pompom, and has its roots in the Italian linen tassel techniques of the 16th and 17th centuries. I've then stitched the knots to a simple ring button. What you can't see is that the button is 8mm high.  I do like textiles with texture - this one wants to be touched!

I've used No 101 ring and perle cotton No 12. 

Size: 12mm / 1⁄2" / 20L
