Day 248 : Road to Nowhere


Day 248 : Road to Nowhere - One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett

Day 248 : Road to Nowhere

And for today's button, I give you another ear-worm. Seeing as I haven't done that in quite a while :)
You're welcome... 

This button has been made using a length of inkle woven ribbon. I have simply folded the two ends in, and then folded it in half, then stitched up the sides with a decorative stitch. I added a thread loop at the back to act as a shank. The band itself was warped up using a multi-coloured thread - there was no working out which is why it isn't perfectly even. I just measured out the warp and kept the threads in order, and got that stripe down the middle. 

I have made a few buttons with woven trims this year. The thing is, woven trims do make perfect loops for buttons. So why not try to make buttons from the same? 

Have a lovely weekend all. Gardening, housework and paperwork for me. And I probably will get sidetracked and do something else entirely :)
