What are his actual dimensions?


The stitch count is 33H x 160W; my finished one is about 1 1/8" by 5 3/4", give or take, done over one on 28ct. I don't think bookmarks are usually that long, though I could be mistaken - I haven't used any of the premade ones before, though have a couple in the stash. Or maybe it would just fit, if they are 6" in working area. HMMMMM....

But I bet he would fit if you did just him, not the border.

(off to make myself a note to check the ones I have - I know a kid that lives at my house that might like a dragon bookmark for his birthday in February - in my copious amounts of free time)

The bookmarks I made were approximately 1.5" x 7"...

I looked for mine last night - can't find 'em, since I "organized" a couple of months ago. I'll save the hunt for the couple of days I have off for Christmas, when I can get back to stiching for me, I hope. Unless I sleep the whole time - the last 5 months or so have me completely exhausted!

Do yours have a border of some type, lace or whatever, or are they just finished banding? I think I have one of each. That just bugs the crap out of me, because I know where they "were" - can picture them in the drawer right now.... Mad

I just did them on scraps of material, made fringes top and bottom by removing threads, then folded over both sides and tacked with Stitch Witchery (iron on bonding stuff).

I like those (the non-pre-manufactured ones) better anyway. If I ever get around to making any of the bookmarks I have (TW's knot ones, for instance), I expect I'll do them on some hand-dyed fabbie.

They are always on my great-Christmas-gift-idea list, but just never to seem to get to them, you know???

I know what you mean... vacation time is about the ONLY time I get to stitch, and then it's too late to work on a gift for THIS year. Maybe I can work on the 2007 gifts this week??? LOL!

Speaking of Christmas pressies, I'm really excited to have a new convertee to cross stitchism in my family- my sister in law has succumbed to the untold pleasures of the craft and as yet has nothing of her own to really stitch with! Yay- a sitting duck for Christmas presents that are just too easy to buy! I thought I'd get her a nice scissors, a hoop and some kind of simple catty pattern to start with (she's very into cats). I've already seen some likely patterns in the Fox Collection: maybe something from the 'cattitudes' series or there's another very cute pastiche of Raphael's putti angels with cats' faces in place of the angels'. Hmmmm, I'm going to enjoy this purchase!

I have never heard it put QUITE that way... I had no idea it was an "ism".

Careful, with talk like that, they'll be calling us witches!

"BURN HER... the evil one that makes magic with the hoop of wood and cloth of linen... BURN HER... and she reads her craft with all those strange and fanciful symbols (like the little tornado) BURN HER!!!"

Now Fabala! That's hardly in the festive spirit now is it? Whatever has put you into this bloodthirsty frame of mind? Still, witches used to be pretty savvy ladies back in the day, often responsible for the healing of the very people who accused them.
I wonder if we could weave hidden messages (or spells!) into our work that wouldn't be discovered until long after we're dead. We could be the new Da Vinci code of the 25th century!
Oh well, that's enough fanciful daydreaming for one day- back to the hoop!
