Need a new idea for displaying your stitchery? We have you covered. Whip up these clever projects using basic stitches and a covered button kit.

All in Knots

Clusters of French knots in graduating shades of orange give a large covered button an ombré effect in the center of a velvet brooch.

Branch Out

Make a straight-stitch tree button in minutes, then root it in a small frame.

Earn Your Stripes

Cross-stitch three chevron bands across Aida cloth. Then finish it into gift wrap using elastic hair bands.

For the Birds

Backstitch a little birdcage with a single strand of floss. Then attach it to a blank pendant, and slip it onto a chain.

Peekaboo Mushroom

Punch a hole in a card front and position this little mushroom button on the inside so it peeks through.
