I signed up to participate in a bookmark swap recently. My partner likes pink and green and all things shabby. As you know, this is not my comfort zone so I thought it would be fun to step outside of my norm and do a little something that would force me to try new things.
I started off with some shabby looking fabric from my stash of fabric sample book pages. Then I added a piece of eyelet lace and three coordinating buttons. From there I used that same shabby fabric and some off white lace to add the little tails to the top. Last, I stitched some hearts onto some burlap type material and stitched those onto the front. I think it's kinda sweet! I hope my partner enjoys it and it was fun trying something new!
