The boys helped me make these bookmarks for family and friends this Christmas. I let them draw pictures onto the fabric using a washable pen and then embroidered over the top. The pictures are of Aunty Katie snowboarding, #2 collecting eggs and some fish for DaddyB who loves catching them. The goth girl is from a tee shirt of mine that I shrunk years ago but never could part with it. I ironed some interfacing (is that what it's called?) onto the back and then cut her out. I was tempted to keep her for myself. I have another two cute kids from the same tee so I'll have to make another one. The bookmark idea is from Handmade Home.
