Octopus clip bookmarks

Recommended Posts

Few days ago I was gifted with patterns for clip bookmarks by fantastic FGM. Before I tried the first pattern for fox bookmark (today  :yes ) I felt INSPIRED and made my own octopus clip bookmarks. That is great in gifts -  they are more than just gifts. I am happy because I got something special AND the same moment I get something more that inspires me and makes me create,  :manyheart

 

For the octopi I used huge clips  ;) but they will do with smaller ones too. Octopi are quite quick to make, easy - and don't need starching  :cheer

Sooo cute! :)

Did you made "double" each one?. What I mean did you made 2 circles and 4 curlies to each one and than connect that back to back? and that would make one?. 

Now as I looked again I would say 3 curlie to each circle and one of curlies on each side?.

 

Maybe I am wrong LOL...

Yes, you are right!I made a circle with 4 tentacles twice and then joined both parts with slip stitches. That makes the ctopus doesn't need any stiffener.

 

I also made a snail but I think I'll glue some felt on the back side to hide the clip.

 

My huge clips are 3,5 inches.

Yes those little things will not curl up when is two of them sewn or glue together (back to back).

OMG, if these aren't the most adorable!!!

 

I'm going to have to try making some of these. I'm not a threadie, I'm a worsted weight girl, but I have discovered if I work slowly and carefully, I do OK with #3 thread.

 

Since my sisters and I, plus my friends are all big readers, we have a lot of books going at all times. What a surprise these bookmarks would make when I finish a book and pass it on to one of them!
