Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind, and dance upon the mountains like a flame!
~W.B. Yeats

Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,

The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams...

~W.B. Yeats

Tudor Rose Bookmark

My mom was so awesome. I found the kit to this in her things and since I love the Tudor times, I stitched it right up. Of course I had to add my favorite Rainbow Gallery gold braid to give it extra know how I am with the sparklie things.

I found the greatest thing to back bookmarks with!!
Its strap fabric off the rollie thing in the trim department.

The best things about the strap fabric is:

1. Its the perfect width
2. Its firm but not too firm
3. Its not too thick at all
4. And the edges are finished, so no extra bulk!

I did add a tiny strip of Skirtex (love that product) inside so the bookmark wouldn't be floppy.  I just don't care for floppy bookmarks.

This is the first bookmark I've ever done. And I'm really happy with it.   :)

Looks fabulous! I am not sure by what you mean by strap fabric?

Strap fabric is what people would use when sewing a tote bag. It comes on a roll in the trim department at the fabric store.
It also came in ecru.

Thank you for visiting and leaving me a comment AND a compliment!!!!!!
