Lembas Bread Leaf Wrapper (the Lord of the Rings)

I wanted to make something from the Lord of the Rings so bad. (I love those movies so much. It's an obsession hehe ;D ) I got the great idea to make leaf wraps for the Lembas Bread. I just thought it looked really cool. (Yah I'm a huge geek :P) Plus with Valentine's day coming up wouldn't that make an awesome gift wrap? ;) What do you think?

I used the picture on this site to make it, just so I could visually get the shape down since in the movie they didn't really show it all unwrapped or it flashed by so quickly I couldn't see.

Please refrain from the *it looks like male parts* jokes. Yes I know, but that is the shape it is supposed to be. It is a leaf that can wrap around to hold things, it needs to be long.
Thanks for looking :D

Being LOTR obsessed (to the point I actually learned a bit of elvish) and on my mind currently as it was just on over the weekend .. I think it is a BRILLIANT piece of stitchery. You did a wonderful job!

Hello! I'm sorry to disturb (and sorry my bad English is not my native language) but I have a question about the Little Leaf pattern. I'm learning to sew crochet, I sewed three months only.
My question is here:
Row 2: 2 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc, ch 1, turn (6)......

I mean the 2sc mean 2 sc in a diferent p or a increase? and after 2sc there is a sc?
That is, they would be like, a increase and sc(3) or 3 sc in diferent p?

I sorry for the inconvenience and thank you! I love this pattern so much!
