About this Product
This lovely gold lily lace bookmark would make a nice gift for any reader.
- This bookmark is done in free standing lace style. The process is embroidered on wash away stabilizer with polyester threads. The stabilizer is then washed out and bookmark is left to dry. When dry it is stiff and holds its shape. If it should lose some of its stiffness you may press it with a warm dry iron and pressing cloth and it stiffen back up. If the bookmark should get bent you can press it with a warm iron, or do what I do and that is just straighten it out with your fingers. You can rinse it out if it does get dirty. Bookmark measures approx. 2 inches wide and 7 inches long, a very nice size. The polyester thread will not fade.
- If you would like a different color, please feel free to contact me as I have many colors of thread. Colors include white, light pastels, pastels, primary colors and fall and Christmas colors. Just be advised that the color will darken down a bit when washed out. This is due to the stabilizer and the washing out process. Also please be advised that the processing time for colors change is 3-5 days, as it takes time to dry completely before shipping.
Nice as a college student gift, bookworm gift or reader gift.
Book is not included with the listing.
Meet the Maker
Welcome to SewFancybyJulie. I live in a small town in South Dakota, and have lived, with my husband for 25 years. After his discharge from the Air Force in 1975, we returned to our home state of Michigan. How did I get to South Dakota, he took a job transfer and here I am and loving it.
I have always sewn my own clothing, as well as, for my children and grandchildren. After retiring, I discovered machine embroidery. I love every minute of what I do. I do it to offer prospective buyers options they can't find in the big box stores.
I do items for the kitchen, pot holders, table runners, embroidered kitchen towels, and so much more. I am a one woman show. I do all the product making, product listing and mailing myself. It's a lot of work, but you never work a day in your life if you love what you do. I love what I do.
Please come by and take a look around, my shop is small for now and I plan on expanding my shop as time goes by.
If you have any questions or requests, please feel free to contact me and I'll see if I can help you.
