My friend liked my nature inspired bookmarks. She certainly qualifies all the above criteria too! When she asked me to make a bookmark for her, I certainly knew it was neither flowers nor leaves, but something different from what she could get usually around. And, what could be the better than a dog bookmark to a Dog Lover Bookworm!
I was looking a lot amigurumi but the sizes were too big for carrying as bookmarks. So I went for crochet appliques. liked this Dachshund Applique by ONE and TWO COMPANY. I added one more ear on the other side to give a 3D look. Now instead of keeping bone separately from the dog, I linked them both with a chain.
Where’s my bone? Where’s my bone? Ah! it’s in the end of this book.
- String length: 7″
- Dog size: 4″
- Bone size: 1″
The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.
- You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pompom.
- You can attach flowers, beads, tassel at the end of the bookmark
- You can add your tag.
Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
In case, you have stuck anywhere or have any queries, kindly contact me.
