I finally got round to snapping the bookmarks I gave as gifts at Christmas, here’s a selection.
These two are my favourites – particularly the one with the long fringes. The warp was a brown cotton and the weft is cotton of the same type but a variety of colours. You may remember that the pattern I intended to use turned out to be something quite different, more akin with rug weaving. So I kept the same tie-up but started randomly making patterns. Mostly of a basket-weave nature or twill.
The one at the end with all the coloured bands is a bit lop-sided but I quite like it, it’s shorter than the rest but feels thick and bright.
After the initial panic of not understanding the pattern, it turned into a rather fun project. Definitely a quick fix project!
