Make a Toadstool Cottage

Look at this super cute toadstool cottage before us. It looks like a home for a little fairy. This will make an amazing toy for your kids but if you are making this for a baby then please substitute those buttons for maybe embroidery. This will also make an amazing pin cushion or just a lovely home decor. After all, it’s spring and it’s the time to bring out all those beautiful and colorful pieces.

Materials needed:

  •  Yarn
  • A pair of straight 3mm (US 21⁄2) knitting needles; minimum length 20cm
  • A darning or tapestry needle
  • Several handfuls of toy filling
  • Black embroidery thread

  • A tiny button 4mm diameter for the door handle
  • Nine small flower shaped buttons 4-6mm diameter
