Lace Buttons

Fantastic GBACG workshop yesterday with Nancy Nehring, author of 50 Heirloom Buttons to Make. We made 5 buttons from her book. Four of mine came out great, the fifth was a hot mess. I would definitely make the morning star and the Victorian flag again.

Wood mold for braid and soutache buttons.

Finished soutache button
Completed morning star in hemp cord, couldn't get the evening star to work. The Morning star looked great in thinner gimp.
Singleton button starts with a running stitch 1/4 inch in from the outside.

Pulled in and back stitched around a brass ring.
