an august workshop for you...

Button Buddies embroidery project

I finished up this August workshop project two days ago, and it took everything in me to wait until today to post it. I get far too excited about these kinds of things.

August's Make. Do. Create. crafty characters are the Extra Buttons. In the PDF you'll find instructions for making Button Buddies, a great use for your extra buttons! The workshop includes six woodland animal patterns: Hedgehog, Rabbit, Owl, Chipmunk (or perhaps Skunk, depending on your color choices), Bear and Raccoon. They are sized for 1 inch buttons, but you could enlarge or reduce if you want.

I'm sure you'll find all kinds of fun places to stitch these up...remember, you can add your photos to the Wild Olive Flickr group!

  4. Mollie, your Button Buddies are ADORABLE! I just put a link to this post on my blog. I hope it brings you a few extra clicks.


  5. Eeeeeeeee! I love them! Thank you for sharing with us :)

  6. Can you imagine adding these to a little girl's dress??? Ahhhhh...too cute. Must find buttons....

  7. Mollie, I love this idea! I'm printing it out right now so I can work on it this weekend. Thank you! And thanks also for sharing your brother's stitching. I always enjoy that.

  8. my first thought was to add them around an existing button, like on a little girl or boys clothes
    you are a genius!! and thanks!
