The area to stitch measures 1 x 2″ and the bookmark is approximately 1-3/4″ x 8 overall. The front and back are ultra-suede and when you’ve finished stitching you can stitch the back to the front (just at the top) or even glue it! You can stitch this in one evening! Be sure to see our other fun bookmarks. We can send silks if you don’t have a thread stash.
