Embroidered Buttons

free mushroom embroidery patternI’ve always enjoyed finding cute buttons for my knitted items because sometimes the smallest details absolutely make the project. Today I’m going to share the stitched buttons I’ve been adding to my knitwear lately. Toadstools were so trendy when I was a teen and now they’re back, so I sprouted a couple for my  Mary Jane Slippers:

A little birdy flew in and perched on my Ribbed Waffle Hat :

And a juicy little pomegranate bloomed on my star stitch headband.

Easy! If you’d like the patterns for these and several additional mini motifs, (an owl, a key and a ball of yarn), you can find them here:

Fine Print: We are absolutely flattered that our crafty friends would want to make cute items from our original copyright patterns to sell in their online shops or brick and mortar stores. We are thrilled to grant that permission. We do, however, request that anywhere the item is for sale, (on each and every online listing OR on each item in your brick and mortar store that a Simply Notable pattern has been used), that you link back to us here at Simply Notable so others can enjoy the same free pattern you utilized. When you sprinkle the Simply Notable love back our way in the form of links, it lets us know how much you appreciate the free patterns we’ve shared. The only hard line we draw here at Simply Notable is that the free patterns themselves absolutely cannot be sold.
