Graduation Gifts

Its the time of year for graduations. Our church only has 1 girl graduating this year, but I was invited to the open house of one of my former students who used to go to the same church as I did (neither of us go there now, though). Both of these girls were in my very first class of Kindergartners! I decided to make an extra bookmark just in case I see any of the others that were in that class, too!

The pattern is my own, although I start in the middle of the top chain (and just tie the ends together for the tassel) instead of at the ring like I have in the pattern.

The pink cross is made from Anchor #20 and I had to stop quite often for the thread to unwind.

The green cross is made from Omega #20 and was fairly easy to tat with.

The multi-colored one is made with Lizbeth #20 and was easy to tat with.
