It’s a snap.
Step 1: Stitch a bookmark (or two, or three…). Any hand-stitched bookmark counts:
- any pattern (one you purchase or one you make up)
- on any ground (perforated paper, aida, linen, canvas, etc.)
- with any fibers (cotton, silk, metallics, beads, etc.)
- using any needlework technique (cross stitch, blackwork, hardanger, etc.)
