Surface Embroidery on Mattress Ticking

This is my current class project. I am doing various stitches on Mattress ticking (using the lines on the ticking). I am going to turn this into a needle book (because currently my needles are stored in random bits of fabric and even paper).

As you can see, my design is symmetrical.

Starting from the centre, I have done chain stitch, blanket stitch with running stitch and colonial knots, tĂȘte de boeuf (gold on the left, pale pink on the right), cretan stitch. And the two outer gold ladders will be a raised bar stitch.
