    Oh, Rhonda you did a great job. If that is a checkbook cover, your pieces of fabric must have been very small!

    Thanks! The small pieces just happen when you use my shortcuts. The smallest piece is usually just 1 1/4" but I do make keychains using a 1" square.

    Oh, Rhonda, those are beautiful! :lol: Are they paper pieced? Or do you just work with really small pieces?

    I started the bookmarks about three years ago and they are my number two seller. They are also the top draw for people on my free teaching site online. They are not a lot of time to make and look dramatic.

    Thanks! I have shortcuts I use that make the small pieces just happen. When I find a place on here to put my links you can see for yourself on my free teaching site.

    I have a friend who works with me and she does the prep work and she did the embroidery on these bookmarks. She does a wonderful job. She is very precise which is necessary in miniatures.

    These are just a few of my favorites

    I have been told recently I need to add cell phone holders to my list. I have been looking at them but haven't designed any yet. I can send you a note when I get something worked out.

    Beautiful work Rhonda. I have made your bookmarks. I made my own template to cut the pieces but have considered ordering the templates that (I think) you had. Plan to make some more. Thanks for sharing.

    It's good to get some feedback on the bookmarks Jim's Gem. Have you posted any pictures of your bookmarks? How did it go to follow the directions?

    No I do not even know how to do paper piecing! I have developed shortcuts over the years that allow me to do a lot of things. I make what I call "Blocks" which are swatches sewn together and then cut out a square with a template. The small pieces happen when you sew the "Blocks" together. You can see a few on my free teaching site.

    You can get the directions on how to make the Boston Braid bookmark on my free!! teaching site. It is easier than you think. The shortcuts make it easy to do!
