A birthday gift
The flower border is adapted from a Christmas design by I Stitch Charts http://istitchcharts.blogspot.com DMC L760 & L3012 two strands.
The alphabet is from Yarn Tree http://yarntree.com/036alpht.htm using DMC 309 two strands. 28 ct. Aida
The fabrics and rick-rack were in my small projects boxes. I used three different fabrics on the back to create stripes and it took 1 yard of the rick-rack to finish the front and make the handle.
Finished size - 7"x51/2"
I'm now back to stitching Cirque Des Carreaux and plan on having that finished for our wedding anniversary in February.
