Day 195 : Crochet Cover
A rather plain button today! This is actually a pattern from an old Corticelli crochet pattern book. I'm afraid I haven't got a date but I think it is from the mid 1920s or 30s. It is part of a pattern for a "coat fastener" and I do think I will have to try the other half.
I was going to play with inks or dyes or maybe add beads, but then I really quite like the simplicity of the button.
Be warned - more crochet buttons to come. I'm testing a new (for me) thread that I am hoping to stock in the shop, and my thumb has been playing up again. Crochet isn't hurting it too much, and my crochet is a little rusty and could do with some improvement. I also have quite a few old crochet patterns. A couple are from newspapers and the text is so fine in my print out I have to take a photo and enlarge it :)
