A new project


I wanted to design a new bookmark. Well, that's not strictly true although it's sort of!!! That doesn't make sense so let me explain.

I was making the last starry button bracelet when it occurred to me that if I took the buttons out then it would be halfway to becoming a bookmark. 

Oh, silly, silly me. Life isn't that easy and this project certainly proved that a 'quick conversion' in tatting doesn't necessarily work.

I guessed at the stitch count and that didn't work very well.  The outer part of the SCMR's was fine but getting the 'button' part the right size proved a right royal battle!!

I'll now show you the first bookmark!!!  This will be improved on - believe me!

  1. While I will look forward to your future tweaks, I like this bookmark exactly the way it is :-)

  2. It's a lovely conversion! Mary Corbet had a recent post saying that 'quick projects' often turn out to be much less quick than we expect.

I beg your pardon? I didn't quite catch what you said.
