SBEBB Stitcher's Pocket Exchange Sent

I received words from Marika that she has received my package. So I can now show you the pocket that I have made for her. Frankly.. I have never made a pocket before and out of a sudden impulse I joined the Stitcher's Pocket Exchange :p.... And when I received my partner's name, reality strikes home. Can I? Will I? Luckily with a pattern in mind and guidance from Cindy on the finishing technique, I managed to pull it through.

This is my 2nd project that uses one of the chart from this french book 'Petits points & Toile de lin' by Marjorie Massey. (The 1st project was a lovely butterfly pinkeep mattress I made for Vonne. ) I love most of her charts in this book. I slightly modified one of her chart and re-arranged the pattern/layout deemed suitable and pleasing for the eye. I used DMC 3041 and sewn it one-over-one onto a 28 count jobelan light-blue fabric. I also personalized the pocket with her initial 'M' at the centre. The pocket is secured by looping the pvc cord around it and ended at the big brown button.
