Chicken Scratch bookmarks

A big thank you to Kerri Made for posting a great tutorial on chicken scratch bookmarks. I joined an anything goes bookmark swap and was lucky enough to find this tutorial on Sew Mama Sew recently. After talking to my Nana in New Zealand yesterday about it - she remembered her sister in laws lovely detailed chicken scratch tablecloth so, I decided to make my Nana a bookmark too.
Here are my completed weekend chicken scratch bookmarks

Love your take on the bookmarks - using coloured floss looks very effective! I made some up last week as well after being inspired by Kerri.
