Day 245 : New Normal


Day 245 : New Normal - One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett

Day 245 : New Normal

Perhaps a less ornate button today, but one that I've been working in my mind for ages. Really, I've not done as many topical buttons this year - back in 2016, I was creating buttons for all sorts of different events and "official" days. It has been a weird year really, let's face it, even the bank holiday yesterday came out of the blue. But I should do a few that will remind of the oddness of the year. I've used a cover button with my button machine and the ground fabric is one of my eco dyed pieces. Over this, a piece of blue cotton - madness pressing those pleats :) Even with my mini iron it was close! I've finished with a little buttonhole edge.

I just wish everyone in my local Co-op would follow the rules and wear a face covering...
