I love this! I have a bunch of fabric and floss so making this should be a breeze! And making bookmarks has been one of my favorite crafts. I'm pinning this one so I don't forget it!

Love this. Now I have to see if I a) have the supplies, b) the arthritic hands and fingers can hold a needle to do the stitches. lol

Thank you.
