|Unflattering political cartoon of Georgiana - 1784|
So I cut out a small piece of the silk/wool blend fabric I'm going to use for the habit vest to use for the center button of the cockade. I found a font I thought looked nice then used a light box to trace FOX on the fabric (in a fabric marker same color as my embroidery thread). Then I just embroidered over that.
Years ago when a seamstress had been going out of business I'd bought a bunch of really huge covered button forms from her (amongst other myriad notions) so I used one of these to create the button.
Now all I need to do is make the loops to go around the button to finish the cockade.
