After selling a good bunch of bookmarks from Twiggy & Opal Too last week, I thought I had better restock. They make great stocking stuffers! You may be thinking 'do people still use bookmarks'? The answer is a big YES! There are still die hard book readers out there! Holding a book in your hands or encouraging a child to read is still pretty popular!
These whales are fabulously fun! A closed book with a whale tail saving your spot...too cute!
A pod of whales!
Complete with a blow hole!
If mammals aren't your thing...how about a den of snakes? These are my kind of snake! Very friendly, cute and one that I would actually hold!
I used leather for the forked tongue.
And of course if you are wanting a slightly more sophisticated look, I got you covered!
The button is perfect to keep the bookmark from slipping inside your book.
In the end, I think I made about 30-35 bookmarks. It was a welcomed afternoon of something different. I needed a break from quilting. Just a short break.
I have officially been blogging for a year now (I started October 5th, 2013) (happy anniversary to me) and decided it's time to take off the 'training wheels' in 2015 with my very own tutorials. Gotta move forward, take it up a notch!
These are so easy! And I cannot wait to share a tutorial with you!
