really anything that catches my eye!

You can, of course, embroider on anything. Here, I used some old teabags - dried out, cut and ironed flat, tacked (or stuck) on to a piece of calico backing, then machine and some hand embroidery. I also added a small piece of burnt metal in the centre. I pierced small holes through the metal, which was thin, and stitched it on to the fabric. - Very satisfying bit of recycling.
