I made this for a friend on another forum as a thank you.
It is meant to hold pot pourri. You can see in the picture of the back that it is an envelope. It is held closed by a small piece of velcro.
The front was done with an altered found pattern. I originally traced a pattern onto the fabric (flannel wicking) but it almost instantly rubbed off so I had to wing it from there.

It is approx 6"x7" and is meant to hang in a closet or from a door knob.

Not the most exciting thing, and definetely not my taste at all, but it suits her perfectly.
Tomorrow it gets filled with some smell goody stuff and then it will go in the mail.

It's very pretty, and it looks like you put a lot of work into it. I'm sure your friend will be delighted.  Smiley

While this isn't exactly my style either, I think it is beautiful.  I love the beadwork you added, it makes the design pop.  I'm curious, is it based on a dutch design?

Honestly I am not sure where the design originates from. I did a google image search for "embroidery pattern" and this is one that came up. It is part of a set of 4 different yet similar designs.

Found Them!

Apparently they are from Victorian Clothing:
