Jumper update

Finished the edging on the top. What a friggin' pain in the ass! I think I frogged more than crocheted. Probably too picky for my own good but why make something you aren't happy with? I started the embroidery on the front. First I put on some vines and leaves but somehow it just didn't seem to have the right "flow" so I pulled everything out and decided to start with the flowers, followed by the centers, and ending with the vines and leaves.
Which buttons do you think will work better on this? I'm leaning more toward the smaller yellow ones but I'm fence sitting.
Rachel, the pattern is in this leaflet. Some of the patterns are knit and others crochet. I don't know if it's still in print. The price sticker says $2.50 at Bradlees and Bradlees went out of business a lllllloooooonnnnnnnggggg time ago.
Bottom almost done on my felted bag. Only one knot in this skein so far. That's got to be a record for any of the Noro I've worked with. Love the yarn; hate the knots.

I like the little yellow ones better as well, but they both work. Love the socks that you have done and OMG to that amt of money at the book store!!! So I guess the money gets bigger as the kids do, huh???

That is just adorable. I so wish I had a lil girl to make stuff for. *sigh* I like the buttons with the white wings. But I'm sure that either would looks just as cute as the other.

I don't know if you already have them on by now, but I like the little yellow ones. You're doing such a good job on the jumper--I can't wait to see it finished.
