Cross stitched bookmarks

 Years ago I cross stitched some bookmarks.

This one was a fun one. I need to give it a backing with some interfacing so it's a bit stiffer.

This one was for my eldest daughter but I never gave it to her. It needs to be cleaned and it too needs backing with interfacing. I'm debating on whether to add her married initial and another balloon.

I found this cross stitch bookmark pattern in a book I borrowed from the library. I changed the colours to suit my preferences. It took a long time because it's full coverage and I left it for months.


  1. They are all so lovely, lots of work in every one, the bottom one is like a bargello quilt, beautiful.

  2. Bookmarks are fun projects. I made a Harry Potter-themed one for our 7 year old grandie for Christmas to go along with the HP books he's reading.

  3. The Bookworm is adorable! Bookmarks are great little projects and they may encourage the recipient to read more, and a little more.
