The background is calico which I have dyed some time ago.
It is a lovely soft green . Some of the pics look as if it is pink but it is just the lighting.
I started off with tiny green seed beeds, just wandering around on the fabric, then some silk ribbon stitches in a soft mauve surround a green crystal slide. Tear drop shaped glass beads catch the light.
Then some more stitching.
Damp stretching on a cork board overnight.
I find this damp stretching is such a great way to finish off a piece of work and pull it into place.
Then the finishing touch.
Fitting it on the button as well as can be done.
It fits beautifully snug and smooth.
