Pouch antique linen embroidered rose

Embroidered antique linen pouch. I used some wonderful tea/coffee dyed trims on this. I then embroidered the rose by first couching on some thick cotton thread and then embroidering around it. I was inspired for this rose by a wonderful Japanese embroidery book called 'Embroidery Design Notes'. I absolutely could not understand how they do the rose so I had to make up my own. The end result worked out the way I wanted so I am pleased with it.
