Day 160: Better Late Than Never

I am quite late posting today’s project. I knew going in that it was going to be ambitious to try to get it done today, but having done so, I couldn’t be more proud.

Pirate Bookmark

I saw this cross stitch pattern on a book of patterns for bookmarks and knew that I had to stitch it. Measuring 99×26 stitches, it really was too ambitious of a project for a single day and I admit that I got a bit of a jump on it last evening. But, I buckled down and think I wore some callouses on my fingers, but I got it done.

I used what they call perforated plastic rather than traditional Aida cloth so that the edges wouldn’t fray. I still technically need to finish it because I need to add some sort of backing to cover up all of the stitching mess on the back, but the real project was getting the cross stitching all done.

  1. eh, I never finished any of my cross stitch bookmarks, and I’ve had some of them for more than 20 years and they’re still going strong. You did a nice job!

  2. This is really cute and worth waiting for. Neat idea and well done.
