I have another of my embroidery designs today. This type of pattern could be used on just about anything. It would work well on small items like a bag,sewing caddy, needlebook, or book cover. Designs like this are also ideal to use on a crazy quilt block.
For this pattern I would choose a thread with a firm twist such as cotton perle #8 or #5.
This design could be worked using surface embroidery stitches using back stitch, chain stitch, whipped chain stitch or stem stitch. The flowers could be worked by simply outlining them or you could fill them with satin stitch or if you like a really neat outline you could use outline satin stitch. If you need to know how I would transfer this pattern to fabric, I have a tutorial on how to transfer embroidery designs to fabric.
How ever you adapt the pattern I hope you enjoy stitching it.
