Finished Rosary and Embroidered Pouch

Here is the finished gift for my nephew's First Communion.
The embroidery is done with silk floss and the zippered pouch is lined.
I made the rosary from round hematite beads.
There's info on transferring embroidery designs below, and I'll post more on sewing the pouch later. You can find instructions for the kind of beading I used to make the rosary here.

I'm glad you ladies think that it's a nice gift. I'm planning to put in a slip of paper with his name and "Made by Aunt Beth" and the date of his First Communion. I hope he likes it. There was a party, and I don't like missing out on attending family things, so I wanted to send him something special.
