Each bookmark is approximately 30 x 100 stitches in size, there’s a slight variation in each pattern’s size. As usual there is no color legend, this is a choose your own threads stitching adventure. I look forward to seeing what you pull from your stash to create these bookmarks.

Enjoy & Happy Stitching!
