Day 225 : August


Day 225 : August - One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett

Day 225 : August

Today's button representing the really hot weather! And either the water I should be drinking, or the jeans and light tops I've been wearing - you decide. :)

The button is made from silk fingerloop braids. The centre uses a spun silk, while the edge a filament. That's why it is shinier. I wouldn't really recommend fingerloop braiding in the heat. Your fingers are too sticky. I put talc on them to stop the rubbing. I figured that out many many years ago when I made countless braids for the Globe Theatre, in summer!

Size : 27mm / 1 1⁄8" / 42L
