      I'm liking those fabric bookmarks. That might be just the thing I could make with all the material I have stashed away. Now, just to find the time.

      I have a few, including myself! My favourite bookmark at the moment is one made from ribbon with beads and charms. I like it because unlike thicker bookmarks made from leather or fabric (crochet, etc), the pages of the book stays flat. I also like to use scrapbooking techniques to make paper bookmarks. Great lens.
