This listing is for a CROSS STITCH PATTERN, not for the finished piece.
I imagine a young girl, of the Victorian age, with a book full of images to entertain her free hours. A book full to the brim with exotic people, animals, and flowers. Her vibrant imagination happily wanders the globe, but she knows that most likely the course of her life will follow the path of those that have gone before her. Her family simply cannot afford the extravagance of travel, and she fears that she is destined to remain on her native soil.
So she stitches some of those images from her dreams into a little pouch in which to carry her small tools and treasures.
This little sewing pouch is meant to be both useful and decorative. A sweet design to take along with you on your adventures both near and far.
