Brian has been using a bookmarker that he got off a top of some kind of a bag, and awhile back I mentioned I should make him a bookmarker for his Bible (which he reads every night before bed).
So the other day, I mentioned to Brian. What should I stitch next, and he said, when you going to make me a bookmarker?! A light bulb went off in my head! I wanted to stitch Work Pray Trust from Lizzie Kate. So I looked at the pattern to figure if I could stitch it over one, and would it be appropriate for a bookmarker. Well what I did was, started in the middle, and then I just picked a magic number and counted out those stitches and skipped them. Im VERY pleased with the results.
I finished the bookmarker with Presto Felt on the back. I also put some Fray Check around the edges, but I still wasnt happy. So I just stitched some "x" around the edges for protection. I had asked if he would like a tassel on the top. He said that he didnt mind.. He liked it the way it was.
Work Pray Trust by Lizzie*Kate, stitched over 1 on 28ct lite blue linen with DMC floss. Finished as a bookmarker.
