Day 122 : Froufrou

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 122 : Froufrou

Day 122 : Froufrou

I love that word. It sort of sums of passementerie in my head, which is possibly why I do like the word so much... 
Today's button is made using techniques from Italian lacemaking, and similar little toggle buttons were often made in white linen or cotton. It's a really tactile button, you just want to pet the ends haha! 

No mould - the shape is made up of the threads (perle cotton no 8 & 12). I've added a stitched central area and then the lighter bullion knots. 

Size (length) 25mm / 1" / 40L
