Bookmark patterns added at Stitching Cards

Six bookmark patterns have been added to the Stitching Cards collection.

They are bookmark high healed boot, bookmark dress, bookmark flower bud, bookmark lamp post, bookmark thistle and bookmark tie. They can be stitched as bookmarks or as cards with added words of your choice.
