    Yep--5th grade, butterflywing. There are 24 of them this year. They'll get two books along with them. I made observations and questioned them the first weeks of school to discover their likes in the animal/sports areas. They came up with stuff I didn't think came on fabric--but a few ladies on the board lent me a hand--or a square and a strip--and wah lah-the bookmarks were born. They will be very surprised to see the stuff on those bookmarks. Hee hee. :-D

    I'm collecting possibilities for years to come when I see something cool on fabric now, especially in sports. Just a 1/4 of a yard goes a long way for these.

    I've been home sick for two days--so I was able to sit on the couch to finish getting the beads on today.

    I apologize to admin about the size of the photos. I double checked them on photobucket and they were 600 pixels--but somehow posted bigger. :|

    I love these. Is this a pattern you designed yourself? I would love to find a bookmark pattern! Wonderful job and a lovely gift for sure.

    Those are absolutely great. You've obviously had a lot of fun putting them all together.

    I have a question for you.....
    I am making bookmarks for my fellow teachers. I gave my DH one earlier and he says it's too thick. The bookmark is simply the quilted front and backing, no filler. How do you get your bookmarks thin enough for the books to lie flat around them?

    Hmm--they don't seem too thick at all--well they are compared to a cardboard one, but the book would lay flat enough. I have muslin between mine. Maybe it's a personal preference? Fifth graders don't think too deeply on how flat their books lie. :lol:

    He is fussy.
    Guess I'll try lots of starch a iron those suckers down!
    I have some fusible webbing that was recommended in a pattern, and wondered if you might have that in the middle. Now I know.
    Thanks.
