The flowers being small, a single strand is best for working. Use two shades of blue for the tiny petals. Finish the centers with a knot of yellow. Work the bud with pink. Use green for the leaves, the stems, the outlining of the word “Bijoux,” and the briar stitching of the border about the whole. The ribbon may be white or very pale green, and is so narrow that the stitches can readily be taken from edge to edge in a slanting direction.

There is an inside pocket of chamois and a perfume sachet. This useful little article can easily be made and embroidered by a novice, and is a pretty and an acceptable gift.
