Lavender Inspired Bookmark

Here is another bookmark that was inspired by the blooms in my yard!

I love lavender! I keep a small sachet filled with dry lavender in my socks drawer. 

I also use lavender oil for a body scrub that I make myself. I used to buy sea salt scrubs, but now I make them myself (at a much lower cost). I simply mix together fine grain sea salt and organic coconut oil (in about equal proportions), and ad a drop of lavender oil

But back to my bookmark. 

It's a simple pattern. I used size 1.25 mm crochet steel hook and a small amount of crochet cotton thread size ten. 

I now have a collection of five lace bookmarks in different spring colors. 

The pattern is available in my Etsy and Craftsy shops. 


  1. What a beautiful bookmark, how clever to be able to crochet so well and is the perfect match for the lavender sprig.

  2. Your lavender scrub sounds so nice and wonderful that you make it yourself. What a pretty crochet bookmark you made too. Enjoy the week.

  9. Most of the time I don’t make comments on websites, but I'd like to say that this article really forced me to do so. Really nice post! Lavender Essential Oil
