Fish bookmark

Recommended Posts

Someone asked me if I have a pattern for fish bookmark I showed some time ago. Then I realised that I wrote the pattern down, but didn't post it. So here it comes, maybe someone would like to try this... :)

Thank you so much for sharing this cute little bookmark! We have a 5 year old dear granddaughter who is a bookworm and a great little fishergirl also. Will be a wonderful stocking stuffer!!!

I love the pattern but there are a couple things missing. What size of hook and what type of thread did you use? Could you please post so I would know what you would recommend? Thanks ever so much. :D

I used 1.5mm hook and Snehurka thread. It's Czech's trademark and in Europe they don't number thread like in US, so I don't know if it's size 10 or 20. Fortunately, for such a bookmark the size is not as important as eg. for a dress... :)The bookmark is a good idea to use thread stash, so you can use whatever you want.

That is a nice bookmark.  I needed some fish for a doll, and I have used your pattern, although I changed it some to make them look more like pond fish.  Thanks!!!

I just made this fish using Peaches & Crème 4 ply cotton yarn and a G hook.  I made two, sewed them together and stuffed it to make a cute little three dimensional fish.  I love it!
