So...I was making buttons for coronation garb over the weekend and here are pictures of them.
The gold buttons are two layers of fabric: one linen and one unknown to me but feels metallic.
All are self stuffed buttons and about the size of a pea.
I love making buttons..they are quick, adorable and make for a nice touch and show of handwork on a piece of garb.

On the lower side, on a groundwork of gold similar to that on the upper cover, is a design of the Crucifixion. Our Saviour wears a red garment round the loins, and round his head is a red and yellow nimbus, his feet being crossed in a manner often seen in illuminations in ancient manuscripts.
