Title: Thread Bookmarks
Author: Wanda Stevens

Book Review by Jennifer J. Cirka (www.jaybirddesigns.com)

I was in need of a quick gift and found Thread Bookmarks by Wanda Stevens. I love crocheting these delicate items because they make quick, yet meaningful gifts. Ms. Stevens gives you the patterns for 10 different bookmarks using size 10 crochet thread. Some designs even add ribbon accents. If you like to make small thread projects like I do, then this book would be a great addition to your library.

My favorite design is Beautiful Butterfly Bookmark. It features a unique motif folded in half to create an exquisite butterfly. The bookmark is then accented with ribbons and a small button. Another design that I love is Pressed Flowers which is made from six circular motifs.

Which one did I make? For my gift, I ended up making Birdhouse Border in shades of purple and pastel green. It was gorgeous and my mother loved it.

This book also includes two different cross designs that would look amazing in anyone's Bible.

One thing I really love about Thread Bookmarks is that each design also includes a chart. As usual, the book also contains a General Instructions section with information such as abbreviations and symbols, steel hook sizes, and gauge. I also like that the book is a portable 5.5” by 8.5” size.

Thread Bookmarks by Wanda Stevens is an excellent resource if you enjoy reading, crocheting with thread, and making quick crocheted gifts.
