5x7 hoop required
These In-the-hoop Bookmarks are completely made in the hoop with fully encased seams, and no hand sewing. I’ve deliberately made the fill very lite, to keep stitch count and time down, so they are economical to create for sale, or make a few at a time.
My girls immediately wanted to color in the blank spaces, so you can easily skip past the colors, and just stitch the outline, and there is a great party favour – it will keep the children occupied, plus they have something other than lollies to take home.
The way the back is constructed, creates a back pocket that the girls like putting pens in – would be very cute as a gift, with a bar of chocolate!!
