So glad it fits without giving you fits, Ms.R. Thanks for your kind words, all! The pattern is an AboutUs freebie by Sandi Marshall, who digitized it from the early 20th century filet (perhaps it used to be a curtain/ a table scarf), and Ms.R said she did not mind vines.
Originally I planned to stitch it in gold on the burgundy colored linen, but the fabric was so difficult to work with which would inevitably result in the sloppy finish. We did not want any sloppiness.
There were no dragon patterns in the needlework store that I frequent, all other Internet freebies were either too long or too colorful (gorgeous Theresa Wentzler) or positioned on the corner (Tante's Zolden) or too cutesy (many others) or too big (a few others). I do not have PayPal and I normally do not sell as I consider stitching just a skill, not art: in to the right, out to the left, all about it.
However, I always look into the new ideas and if you have some, please PM me. It was my first bottle pouch although there were two pouches (one for odds and ends, and another one for storing cotton balls) before, this one "sits" on a round base reenforced by a piece of plastic. Beads were hard to find too -- I had to cut apart a little hair barette to get them.
The stitching took about 12 hours, the finishing took about two and a half. Every single minute put into it turned out to be pure joy!
