a butterfly bookmark

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen one of these on here, although I have looked... But anyway. My mum's best friend had her 60th birthday the other day, and I didn't know about it (erk) so I have made her a butterfly bookmark, and she is a voracious reader, and a hippy, so I thought that she would like this. I do hope so!

 

I haven't starched it or anything, so I'm hopefully gonna make it a bit better in terms of shape...

 

But here it is:

I think your bookmark shaped up beautifully, and your mum's friend should love it. I've "bookmarked" the pattern to make one for myself, an elderly former beatnik wannabe who is always using scraps of paper for bookmarks.

Awh, thankyou everyone for your kinds words! I used a 1mm hook instead of the 1.25 suggested for the thread I used, but I don't think it made much of a difference. I think it made a difference for my poor tired eyes though! Haha! I was really pleased with it though. I don't know whether or not she has received it yet though...
