I haven't been sewing, but knitting for my Grandaughter. She is almost 11 and she wants the look to be like the other kids. So she picked out the sweater. The idea is she wanting things to look like her friends, but not. She likes the colors. She has a couple purchased shrugs and she wanted something different. I think I am going to sew on this button with a loop. They suggested a rhinestone pin, but she is just a little girl yet.
