Day 223 : Taffy


Day 223 : Taffy - One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett

Day 223 : Taffy

Today's button's colours have named it. They just reminded me of proper pulled taffy colours. We made it once when I was a kid, I haven't had it for years. There's nothing quite like it here in the UK - at least I haven't found it. I must need something sweet! 

A doodle button of sorts. The base is a zwirnknopfe of course. And then just added stitches. The thread is one I haven't yet used for a zwirnknopfe, although I did use it for some crochet. Many of the modern German buttonmakers use it. I'm in two minds to be honest. I like the very defined lines, that's for sure!
