Description

A bookmark composed of lengths of yarn, felted to an eco felt background, and stitched to resemble woven cloth, trimmed by a tail of coordinating ribbons.

A pretty crocheted blanket, listed in this shop since it is made from odds and ends of coloured yarns left over from other projects, produced a little pile of yarn snippets when the ends were stitched in. These yarn snippets were hand felted to an 'eco' felt (commercially produced from recycled bottles) background - blue yarn alternating with the other colours featured in the blanket. Rows of small running stitches in cotton threads were then worked down the bookmark, stitching over alternate lengths of 'weft' the colours chosen to replicate the 'weft' colours. These 'warp threads' were stitched with alternate rows beginning over 'weft one' or 'weft two' to imitate a woven design. Backstitching, in a fine blue thread, has securely anchored the 'weft threads' down each long edge of the bookmark. The bookmark is backed with ribbon. Ribbon tails complete the design.

Length of embroidered panel - 14 cm approx.
Total length - 20.5 cm approx.
