Description:  This interesting and somewhat challenging-to-stitch bookmark design incorporates several motifs inspired by Renaissance period art and architecture. It's designed in shades of blue, gold, mauve, and green with metallic fiber accents. The directions include tips on changing the colorway should you desire to do so.


Stitching Comments:  This design is small, but is fairly challenging with lots of fractional stitches, and some lazy-daisy stitch motifs. There's also a bit of metallic braid for added interest. I finished the edges of the bookmark by doing a narrow hemstitch approximately 6 fabric threads away from the edges of the stitching, and trimming the fabric close to the hemstitching.

Pattern Errors/Corrections: none
