Day 60: Diderot 2/8 #onebuttonaday by Gina Barrett

Another button based on Diderot & Alembert's Encyclopedia. In the 1763 volume, the design is "Fig 2", while in the later 1786 edition the designs have been re-numbered and it is Fig 8 (hence my name). This is worked in cotton, as many of my trials are - I can't wait to try this design in a fine silk.

Name: Diderot 2/8
Type: Thread wrapped & needlework
Materials: 25mm (No 3) MDF mould / No 8 perle cotton
