Lacy Handmade Bookmark, Delicate, Intricate Needle Tatting with Dangle

Image Description
This hand made tatted bookmark with a dangling pendant is the perfect addition to a book gift or as a gift all on its own for any booklover. The intricate lacy pattern of three-leaf clovers looks delicate but is sturdy. Tatting, or the art of lace making, is composed of thousands of knots that make up rings and chains and the lacy effect is achieved by the pecots, or the spaces left between the double stitches. With needle tatting, the size of the uniform knots depends upon the size of needle used, and I like to use either a fine or very fine needle. This bookmark is the same style as the one that won a first place blue ribbon in the Arizona State Fair in 2012. The winning bookmark was white cotton, although the color pictured here is a soft green. I currently have in stock; white, navy blue, three-tone blue, a lighter tone of green, peach and three-tone white and aqua. So...if you like this style bookmark but would prefer a different color, size or what have you, just let me know! Please allow up to 5 days for tatting and finishing special requests. I do have other colors of thread in a few other colors, or if you'd like to specify your favorite color I'd be happy to do that too. Each is lightly stiffened to help hold its pretty shape.
