Crochet Bookmarks

I have a shawl to finish, so instead of working on it, I made bookmarks

The pictures are quite self explanatory. Crochet a flower, square or whatever motif you life. Cut out a peice of felt for the back and cut elastic that is long enough to go around your book from on edge of the motif to the other side. Sew the elastic to the felt and then sew them to the crocheted motif.
Quick, satisfying and very practical because they are less likely to fall out like regular bookmarks do.

    They look lovely and the idea is brilliant! Yes, less likely to fall out. Love it!

      Unfortunately they do get taken off by little hands because she wants to play pirates and wears them like eye patches
