You can find the pattern over at Daisy Cottage Designs. While you are there, you can check out her other patterns; some are so cute! I did not add an embellishment to my bag yet. I am in the process of moving halfway across the country, so that will have to wait a bit longer. I saved just enough of the darker yarn to make my own flower.
As for the vest, once I get settled, I will attempt it again with a thinner yarn. The thicker ones just don't work well for me.
