Rose Pouch for Her Grace Jitka embroidered by Petra

I am new to the SCA and when the call came out for rose bags I thought it would be a great focus to expand my skills. I found a beautiful rose pattern by Mary Corbet – Needle’n’Thread. I didn’t use the precise materials, but was able to practice the techniques and stitches with the materials I had. This is my 4th embroidery project.
