I decided to make me a pocket too, with a similar toppic as my friend's is. I feel lucky to have found this picture on the web - not sure, but I reckon it comes from a bell. I only had to twist the upper loop cause it didn't suit the final shape.
I added some lines to resemble the blue dragons - and there's the result. As people nick me Frog, because of a green colour, of course my dragons are green:-) The technique is all the same: bayeaux for the bodies, stem stitch for the outlines and refilsaum for the rest.
