Button number 2

This is the second button I have made while doing Karen Ruane's button workshop.

I have used a silk dupiont, & done needle woven bars in a white cotton a broder. Too one of the bars I have added a little needle lace, & then I have done two web stitch wheels & added french knots & beads to give the button a little sparkle.

I need to go & buy some more self cover buttons now :-)

This is the first of what will no doubt be many embroidered covered buttons. The base fabric for the button is silk noil & has been embroidered using a range of cotton threads. Cotton a broder, Primke vairigated cotton threads in size 8 pearl & stranded. You can email me if you wish to purchase these Primpke cottons as I sell them. I have also added Mill Hill seed beads as well, which I also sell.

The finished button measures 4.8cm.

Stay tuned as I hope to have the next button up sometime today or tomorrow. Just doing the finishing touches on it.
