Pink Rose Cellphone Pouch Stitching Complete

I finished up on my Pink Rose Cellphone Pouch yesterday:

Look closely at the lace appliques.  I didn't want the leaves to cover my seam treatment on the right so I gave it a 3 dimensional look by bending that leaf on the right in a downward position.


I loved the way it looked so did something similar with the other 2 leaves and then beaded it all.  I also left the edges of the pink flowers floppy meaning, I didn't tack them down a the tips of the petals.  They're only tacked in the middle and then further supported with the bead work.  It's a little hard to see in the photo but it's quite 3 dimensional and a very interesting technique which I plan to do again on future projects.

Click on the photos to see larger versions.

And here is the seam embroidery for this pouch:


Both of these seam treatments are worked using waste canvas.

I have more 1 cellphone pouch that to stitch and then hopefully, over the weekend, I can assemble them and do the hand finishing:

The colors on this one feel a little odd to me but I know I can work with it.  Let's see where this one goes!

Pam, the pouch turned out so pretty. I like the dimension on the leaves and, of course, the added beads.

I love the addition of the blue with the pretty pink rose - perfect! The bees and the hummer are pretty sweet too.
