Easter Cross Bookmark- 1949 style
The last two issues I’ve done correlated very well with the time of this year’s Easter. Easter themed projects in both. The April issue had several quick crafts and I’ve accomplished several of them that I’ll be telling you about. This cross is one thing I made, and it was super easy and quick. The best part was that I used skeins of perle cotton, just the cheap kind you’d buy in a big pack for friendship bracelets and such. It used two skeins of pink and one of white, and I just used all the leftover to make the tassel, so that it used the three skeins with none left over. I gave this one to my niece for Easter.
It was constructed from the bottom row up, and then you do the edging. The pattern is quite easy, but is long. If there is enough interest for it I’ll type it up for everyone.
Stay tuned for more from the April 1949 issue.
