This and That

January 19, 2018

In keeping with my New Years resolution to stitch every day in 2018….. I am keeping bookmark canvases and threads next to my recliner. Some of you remember that my ANG chapter stitches bookmarks, using stash, and donates then to an adult literacy organization in Tucson. They are also great traveling projects. I grab threads and start stitching…no designing beforehand. Using simple stitches I just cover the canvas. To finish, I usually just cut around the top and sides and ravel the bottom. It a great chance to open a stitch book and try something new. Here are my latest finishes.

    It looks as thought the edges are not finished. How do you prevent them from fraying? We also make bookmarks, but have stayed with fabric so they can be fringed or sewn to prevent fraying. I really like the idea of what you are doing.

      The canvas (18ct in most cases) won’t ravel. These get given out for use and hopefully get laid flat. If they ravel … oh well 😔 that means they are being used.

    Thank you! I will try that as I often have canvas that is too narrow for a design but would work for a bookmark.

    The bookmarks look great and must be fun to stitch. A clever way to practice “just stitching”!
