The craft group I help with in a retirement home meets for the last time this year on Friday. So we organisers got together this morning to make Christmas crackers to give to the crafters. My contribution, apart from making the crackers, was tatted bookmarks:

I used the Jane's bookmark pattern (link on the sidebar) because it's quick and easy and I wanted them all the same. I sometimes  add a tassel, but since they had to be squashed into a cardboard roll alongside sweets and furry toys, I decided to leave the tassel off. Oh, there is a riddle in each cracker too. 


  1. Great idea!! :)
    Great bookmarks!! :)

  2. That's a great idea! Much better than a piece of plastic they can't use.

  3. Beautiful bookmarks and I am sure they will love them

  4. Beautiful bookmarks! Good idea to make different colors.
