This is small, about 8 inches across. The center is crocheted and then sewn on, the rest is embroidered. I didn't follow a pattern, I make up the design as I go.

The second photo is of the unfinished project because it shows the sides better. I'm not sure if the fabric with the little birdies was a good choice, it may be too distracting since the whole thing is pretty gaudy. The back is the same green satiny fabric (which doesn't photograph very well).
