There is a range of patterns on the Stitching Cards web site that are designed to fit on a card 50 mm x 152 mm (2 ins x 6 ins). This is half the width of a standard double fold card so it enables them to be used as bookmarks or greetings cards.
A bookmark cross with flowers pattern has been added to the Stitching Cards collection.
This bookmark would make a great gift for a bible reader. It could also be used on a greetings card for religious occasions such as Easter.
Stitching Cards customer Angela has sent us pictures of some colourful bookmarks. They are made with Stitching Cards bookmark patterns.
Angela said: “My 13 year-old daughter is our primary stitcher. Last spring she and I made bookmarks for all the teachers our children have had in the local elementary school. It was our last year there, so we had the teachers over for a luncheon to thank them for their work. They each chose a bookmark to take home and were just thrilled. Teachers do love books, and what a great keepsake.
Six bookmark patterns have been added to the Stitching Cards collection.
They are bookmark high healed boot, bookmark dress, bookmark flower bud, bookmark lamp post, bookmark thistle and bookmark tie. They can be stitched as bookmarks or as cards with added words of your choice. The patterns are ideal for birthdays and to send messages such as congratulations, well done, thank you, with love or invitation.
It was made as a bookmark for her Auntie’s 90th birthday. Mary embroidered it in DMC stranded embroidery floss on a mottled green card stock. After stitching she mounted the green card on larger piece of yellow card stock to hide the stitching on the back and to form an attractive border.
