It seems I am always losing my bookmark. Now keep in mind that my bookmark is either one of those postcards that fall out of magazines or a paper sales tag cut from clothing or whatever piece of paper I can find lying around at the time. It also seems that I always have long, thin scraps of Peltex left over from making postcards. So, I decided to use up some of the Peltex and make myself a couple of bookmarks.
I used the same blue fabric I am using for the blue postcards I am currently making. I used one of the decorative stitches on my machine then couched some yarns onto each side. Zigzag stitched the edges, added some more yarns, a few beads and called them done. The one on the right is reminiscent of a vintage couture dress. (Is too, doncha see the bustline and the hips?) :o) Or maybe I have a vivid imagination.
I hope I will be able to find one of these when it comes time to mark my place. I am currently reading Janet Evanovich's Ten Big Ones. What are you reading today?
