After seeing a project in a magazine showing a greetings card made by using a prick and stitch technique, I wondered if my lovely crafters at Sunnybank Day Care Centre would like a go at making a bookmark using the same method.
Well you know what happened next, even before I had my breakfast, yes I had to have a go.
Now bear in mind that all my stuff is making its way into another room ready for the new flooring next week, so I was limited with my materials.
Taa-daah.... this is the result.
There are loads of permutations we could use for this project... different shapes for the stitched part, lots of coloured threads, we could add beads, buttons, crimp the edges... ooh the possibilities are endless. The back is plain. Using double sided tape I stuck a piece of card the same as the front to the back to give the bookmark more rigidity.
So look out for pictures in the forthcoming weeks of what the crafty club members make.
Oh well, back to shifting my stuff.... or shall I have a cup of tea first. Hmmm ?
