Theme Thursday… this week’s challenge is to make bookmarks!! You’d think I’d have had enough of them by now, but no! There were 2 plain ones left, needing a little pizzazz, so I added images and netting and a little plaiting!

So there you have them – scruffy frayed fabric, a bit of zigzag stitching, images from Ten Two Studios (left over from Halloween, DOTD) and plaited cords… On the left, the image and the fine blue net is slipped inside a plastic sleeve and sewn on; on the right, the image inside the sleeve is placed on top of the turquoise net and stitched in place.

If you want to know exactly how I made these, there’s an article HERE that’s more detailed! (Just scroll down a little…) xo

    Love the fabric and stitching!

  10. Wow, Rosie..first time I’ve been to your blog (bad me!) and what a treat! I love your stitching…the bookmarks are fabulous!

  11. Great bookmarks but somehow I’d have to save them for something ‘dark’. I think they might get a bit miffed to find themselves between the pages of chick lit. I see more of a Neil Gaiman type tale myself…
