You know Sunday is Father’s Day, right?
My dad is a prolific reader. And he’s forever using any scrap of paper, any paperclip, perhaps a toothpick – whatever he has on hand! – to mark his place in books.
If your dad is anything like mine, you could always embroider a bookmark for him for Father’s Day.
Hand embroidered bookmarks make great gifts for anyone who reads, or should read. Maybe you’ve got a recent graduate in the family? Or maybe you have a children’s summer reading program at your local library that could benefit from some prizes?
The best thing about embroidered bookmarks is that they’re quick to make and easy to finish!
You might remember that I gave you a sneak peek of this particular bookmark some time ago, in May.
Well, my free tutorial for hand embroidered bookmarks is available now on Craftsy, so I’m going to direct you there for the complete, step-by-step instructions for an easy bookmark.
It’s a perfect weekend project! I hope you have a lot of fun with it!
Checking Out for a While
This morning, I had to leave town in a hurry.
Yep, they’re after me again!
I’ll be out of town for several days (maybe longer), to visit my aunt who is ailing. I’ve got a couple articles, including some fun tutorials, lined up for you for next week, but it’ll be a rather light week as far as Needle ‘n Thread goes. I’ll have occasional access to email, but the website will be on auto-pilot for a bit. You’re welcome to leave comments and to email, and I’ll do my best to get back to you when I can.
Have a terrific weekend!
And do make a bookmark – they’re great fun!
Toodles for now!
