I made these fabric bookmarks for a "hand stitched bookmarks" swap on swapbot. I attached sticky felt to the back to make them more sturdy. One funny thing is that I wasn't even sure about the theme or layout when I started. I sewed on the flower first. Then I had the idea for the stitches for the stem. While stitching the piece of fabric below the stem to the fabric of the first bookmark, I realized that it looked like a flower pot. For the second bookmark, I just varied the color scheme a bit according to the preferences of my second swap partner.
