Maybe its the former preschool teacher in me or just the grandma, but I see this as a wonderful sorting toy for a child. Instead of buttons, how about attaching tiny Velcro bits to the tree, and then providing an assortment of colored felt pieces? That way the child can decorate the tree themselves and sort color and shape at the same time.

This pattern is available for free on Ravelry. This is a good project to help use up all those garage and estate sale button collections I have been holding on to for a while now. This tree is so cute! Its not very big either with a height of only five and a half inches.

Thanks for the tip about finding the pattern on Ravelry. I'll add that to my patterns on my account, and download it as soon as I can.

This is absolutely adorable. I'm making one for all my friends and family (and a few for myself!)
