The silk velvet strip, leave it plain or embellish? I went with embellish. I guess you knew I would. Seven toggles, all hand made using rolled cloth, a few slip stitches and little coloured beads. This surface is now finished. I've settled on this being a pocket, now I have to put the reverse together and think about the lining. There will hopefully be hankies involved in both those pieces....now I need to raid my stash.
(I forgot to mention....there's a little embroidered button under one of the hankie edges too. You can see that in the second image)
