felt bookmark for Robyn




Here's the finished WIP I showed you. A felt and elastic bookmark for my September-born bestie. I was inspired by this pin, and it was very simple to make. All you need is small scraps of felt, floss and some elastic. I thought, what a great gift to make for Christmas for friends who love to read! If anyone reads real books anymore, that is. I myself like to feel a book in my hands instead of a gadget, but I can definitely hear the siren song of carrying your entire library in your purse.

That gorgeous volume of Jane Eyre is not the one I gave to her (she actually gave that to me), but in true Larissa fashion Les Miserables had not made its last minute appearance yet. Here is the real McCoy just before I boxed and wrapped it with her other birthday trinkets:

    1. Welcome back, Anjeanette! I also go through weeks sometimes where I can't keep up with the blogs I read, and then it is like a treasure trove that I get to look through so many unread posts.

  3. Beautiful! Love the idea of the pretty part being able to show on the outside instead of being tucked in between the pages.
