Cross stitch bookmarks

The other day when I showed one of my crafty friends what I'm stitching these days...she asked how am I'm gonna finish it. I said i will get it framed and hang on the wall. She asked how about making pieces which are more practical(can be used in daily life).

Inspired by her advice and my wonderful FB group, I thought of trying my hands at making bookmarks.


I loved stitching these simple quick bookmarks...best part being I could use threads given by my mom when she stopped cross stitching.



I had a hard time finishing these as I am bad at sewing :(
Lesson learnt: learn sewing
