Day 126 : Song of Sixpence

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 126 : Song of Sixpence

Day 126 : Song of Sixpence

Today's button was one that I've intended to make (in some shape or another) since my last challenge in 2016. During that challenge, we moved into our current home, And as I was cleaning I found this sixpence. And it happens to be my birth year. I thought I would add it to a button but in the end didn't. Well, I have now!

I've covered a No 4 mould with fabric and padding, and added the coin using the beginning of a shisha stitch, but working a cretan stitch over it with perle cotton No 8. That's how it started, but then I added blanket stitches and wrapping... you can see how I started it over at the Needle 'n thread website.
