I've started making some bookmarks, also for the sale. First up are two of Nancy Tracy's bookmarks.
The bookmark on the left is done in LadyShuttleMaker's "Hosta Leaves" HDT and Lizbeth color 685, Evergreen Dark. I think the dark green looks nice with the lighter greens in the HDT. The one on the right is Lizbeth colors 632, Purple Medium, and 633, Purple Dark. I like how you can make this pattern look different by using colors in different places.
Both bookmarks are the same size; they just came out different on the scanner.
This is a nice pattern that a beginner could do easily. I always add a tail to it, because I think a bookmark should have one. For both of these, I just used a lock stitch chain ending with a simple motif based on the stitch count of the bookmark. The motif is R 3-3-3-3-3-3, C 3-3-3-3-3-3; repeat for a total of 7 rings and chains, joining each ring at the 2nd and 4th picots.
Nancy says that she was trying to design a bookmark that would resemble a small doily, and I think she succeeded.
