Day 263 : Orm


Day 263 : Orm - One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett

Day 263 : Orm

Today's button is made up of a flat knot tied with knotting cotton, stitched to a button covered in precioussss silk fabric. This fabric colour is the best I have ever achieved using madder. At the time, I really wished I had added thread to the pot! I have always struggled with madder dyeing, usually my temperature is wrong and I have little patience, but this stuff turned out such a pretty colour, despite not actually being red-red. And while it was sold to me as silk velvet, I never did a burn or other test - I paid enough for my one metre I wasn't going to be disappointed haha! 

I hope that you are all having a good weekend.
