Red French Needle and Scissor Holder

The name of this design from Atalie is "Le Labrinthe des Lettres" and it was a fun stitch.  She actually had a flower stitched in the center but I decided to leave that off and instead sew a heart shape piece of wool felt to hold needles.  I was even able to find an Eiffel Tower charm that I think is just adorable.  I stitched it on an HDF 36ct. linen using "Perfect Red" HDF silks.  On the back there is a pocket to hold your scissors or needle packets.  I did twisted braid around the outside and placed frosted pearls evenly spaced to hold the braid in place.  I do like how this turned out, but I have so many of these I'm running out of room to display them....therefore, this one is in my store if you are interested.  
Blessings as always,
