I made a quick tote bag with a rough hessian outer layer and thought it'd be perfect to cross stitch on, so...



It's cross stitched with wool, and the leaves are made out of ribbon. This is what the whole bag looks like, as modeled by my dog (isn't he cute?!):



I've put a few more details on my blog.

Oooo, I second the ribbon-love.  That's a really cool idea.  And I adore red-eyed tree frogs.
