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 but with a thinner yarn. The thicker ones just don't work well for me.
