Good morning everyone.

Looking for a miniature peach design about 1 cm in size.
I work at a fruit stand during the summer and my boss thought I could sell my knitted hats during the fall to help sales. I thought it would be cute to make a label with a peach logo on it the tag would be similar to the picture below.
Unfortunately I haven't found a design small enough. Any ideas on where I may find one. An outline or filled in peach either one would be okay.
Thanks in advance.

1 cm is very small - see pictures. The squares are 1x1 cm. Advantage: it has only 102 stitches

That's perfect! I know how difficult it is to create something that small to look realistic.

You are right about small designs. I started digitizing zoomed in to 400% and put in nice details, but at real size that looked awful and I was not satisfied until I had removed everything but the bare outlines.

Thanks for the info on how you did it. I'll put it in my "how to" folder!

Cute hat! The more you have to sell, the longer people stay at the booth!

The only website that specialized in minis that I know of closed shop. You might ask if anyone on this Forum if someone can do one for you. I don' t know what the fee would be charged for it. I like the idea of using felt as an option too.

Hi i have two suggestions. I is get your own design - draw one and have it digitised for you by basketkase or 2 get some buttons made with whatever you want on. Sent you a PM for details.

I wonder if felt would do the trick. I am sure with a little fabric paint or pens you could create a peach.

I also thought of making my own wooden buttons to give it more of a homemade look. I have lots of time since this will be for next year. Knitting up the hats over the winter for next season :)
