    I am starting this thread so everyone who is making the DP bookmark can post any pics you want.

    I encourage everyone to post a pic of the blocks you are making now. I think everyone will be interested to see what fabrics you are using and how you are faring with the yoyos etc.

    so I would love to see some pics going on here now and not waiting til the bookmarks are all done!!

    What do you say ladies and gents?

    We would love to see your bookmark in progress!!

    I went through the tutorial, Rhonda and I think it's something I can do. I'd love to try it this weekend. If you hear far-off screams, you'll know that I need to ask questions. :-D

    Had a migraine yesterday evening so did not work on them. I started this morning and have gotten this far. I placed them in a plastic disposable plate and sprayed them with starch. I am going to leave them to dry until tomorrow.

    Here they are all saturated with starch and waiting to dry.

    the only thing is that I iron mine after I spray. So did you iron after you spray or leave them to dry without ironing? I like mine really flat so I iron. That also dries the spray some too. It's sort of like using steam only it's the spray instead of steam.

    Thank you Rhonda.

    After I squared up the first block I said "wow" these are small. However, I remembered the DJ blocks and if I did those I can also do this.

    Looking forward to the part 2.

    OK, I've got lesson 1 done. I'm making 2 bookmarks, me & DH. First mini I'm attempting, it's different, but could become additive.

    Lookin good kygirl. I do like your fabric too! Will be fun to see everybody's finished bookmarks!

    So any comments on the process? Like or dislike anything? Was it hard to do or easy to do?

    Looks great retrogirl!! I like reds alot so I like your fabrics!

    Anyone who has EQ can go in and play with designs and colors and turn blocks to see what happens. It's a lot of fun! If you don't have a software program you can use graph paper and cut out paper blocks and turn them to see what designs you get. Play with the color and challenge yourself to see what you can come up with. Color makes a big big differance in designing. Just changing the color can give you a whole new look.

    So far, your steps and pics have made the process very easy and fun. I'm enjoying working with the tiny. The only time consuming part was removing the paper circles after the starch had dried. I kinda tore them in half so I wouldn't disturb the fabric.

    I'm glad it's going well for you! Everyone will find their own way to figure out the yoyos I am sure. As long as you get the right size that is all that matters.

    So sorry I am working as fast as I can to catch up. I had to order more templates and more template plastic. I have had over 300 requests for templates in the last 2 -3 weeks so is takes time to get more supplies. I hope to have them all out today.
