Lavender Bouquet Pouch
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY FABY REILLY DESIGNS
Fantastic detail and clever design: it's very rare to find a cross stitch pattern that is already designed to be assembled as a pouch. The stitched parts include both the side and parts of the base of the pouch. When mounted, the pretty stitched details show on all sides of the Octagon shape. Follow Faby Reilly's very detailed step-by-step instructions for assembly, the "Octagon pouch" tutorial.
The beauty of this project is the exquisite stitching of the lavender flowers and butterflies, a clever combination of cross stitch, back stitch and French knots. No fewer than 14 colors are used to convey the delicate shadings of the flowers.
This pattern is part of the Lavender Bouquet series that includes a humbug, a biscornu, a pouch, a needlebook and an ortbag.
