The Most Custom Bookmarks in the History of, Like, Ever.

I didn’t have much to post in December, but I was in fact busy making Christmas presents. I took a surface design class at the Art Institute in the spring, coincidentally taught by my boyfriend’s mother, Besty Knabe Roe. So I had all these fabric samples and no idea what to do with them. So I found something to do. Pretty much the only thing I didn’t do was weave the fabrics themselves, and if  it’s a felt bookmark, then I did make the fabric. I’ll post these a few at a time. Probably too time-consuming to sell commercially, but they were fun exercises. They are humble bookmarks, but I belive the family enjoyed.
