Fabric Bookmark

July is a busy month for birthdays and after celebrating my hubby's birthday on Thursday, my good friend is having her birthday on Sunday. I wanted to make something that would post easily with her card, just a little something to wish her a happy birthday. I thought a fabric bookmark would be a good idea so I did a bit of computer surfing and found these beautiful bookmarks and thought I would give them a go. Do you find that it isn't until you come to make something that you find you could have done things differently but it's too late to change what you've already done? I should have probably joined the two pieces of fabric together with a blanket stitch so the back wasn't untidy but I hid it with a felt flower and a button, problem solved.

So have you got any plans for your weekend? Tomorrow I'm going to a beginners crochet class at this place. I thought it might be a bit of fun and who knows what I might learn! Have a great weekend.

P.S. Don't forget to enter in my giveaway!
