Pink Roses and Lace Bookmark

This is the second lace bookmark I've made this year. It turned out so delicate and beautiful. And I thought the tiny Cecile Brunner roses that now begin to bloom in my back yard would compliment it very well. 

This bookmark can make a simple but lovely present for Mother's Day, or maybe as a small thank-you gift to my son's preschool teacher. 

Several years ago, I was very much into snail mail pen-paling and I had mail friends all over the world. I used to send them similar crochet bookmarks because they can easily fit into a regular mail envelope and it's always fun to surprise your friend with a little something that you've created yourself.

For this bookmark I used leftover crochet thread size ten (such as Aunt Lydia's) and a steel hook 1.25 mm. My bookmark turned out 8 inches long and 2.5 inches wide. But this pattern can also be used to make a beautiful lace edging or trim. 

The pattern is available in my Etsy and Craftsy shops.
