Button Number 4

This is the fourth button in what will be loads more☺

This button was made using silk velvet with a silk brocade in the centre. The fabrics where given to me by a very dear friend Isabell xx I have cut the centre of the velvet out & then done a buttonhole & needle laced edge around it. The brocade was secured on by a running stitch around the buttonholing. I have then finished off the button by adding some silk ribbon french knot roses. This is the first time I have used the silk ribbon frech knot roses, & I have to say I love them & will be using this stitch a whole lot more in my embroideries☺☺
Big Hugs Your Friend
