I'm working on the same pattern and have finished the knitting part... but like the OP my button holes are TINY. I've thought about just stitching the strap and button to the shoe and have it just be decorative instead of functional. Do you think the shoe would be too difficult to slip onto the foot if I do that?

It does look like it might be a problem getting the booties on with just a decorative button. If the strap is loose enough to work with a decorative button, the booties may slip off too easily. Since the buttonhole row is almost at the very end of the finished bootie, I'd take out the sts and re-knit with a larger buttonhole. A double yarn over may make it too large but you could try it or just do a rather loose single yarn over that isn't pulled tightly at all.

Thanks! I'm too scared to undo it so I'm going to try with the button and if it definitely won't fit, I think I'll use ribbon instead of the button.
