This month's craft is to make this cross stitch bookmark!
Click here to reserve your kit: https://greenelibrary.bibliocommons.com/events/63ff66c0e6ec434100efb57e
Included in your kit:
1 blank bookmark
1 piece felt for backing
1 embroidery needle
NOT included in your kit:
Glue (I used fabric glue, but I think other types would work)
- I started stitching with the very bottom row (symbol = purple 3). I counted 7 stitches from the left and 7 stiches from the bottom to begin.
- After you've stitched the entire pattern, cut the felt piece just smaller than the bookmark and glue to the back. I used tacky glue, but any fabric glue will work.
It is very important to waste as little embroidery floss as possible. There is a fair amount of backstitching and you will need all of the floss for that. Additionally, I did not provide the brown floss for backstitching the pages. I just used the darkest purple for that.
As always, if you have questions you can email me at email@example.com.
