Quite a while back I was browsing in a bookstore when I spied the coolest bookmarks. They were called "Book Thongs", and my first thought was... I can make those! The amazing thing is, I actually did make some!!!
The ones you see above were made as Christmas gifts for my coworkers at the time, about four years ago, I think. Of course, I couldn't call them by the same name! [grin] Mine are called "Thong Bookinis"!!!
The one on the left was made for one of Bob's coworkers just this past year to mark her pages as she recovered from surgery.
The last grouping was also made at the same time as the first group and went to family members and my buddies Sue and Valerie. All of the ones made as holiday gifts were boxed in a little red box with a green fabric ribbon with a little tag (shown temporarily attached to the bottom groupings thongs) identifying the recipient.
