Radiant Rainbow Heart Bookmark!

This bookmark measures 7-1/2 inches in length when Size 12 Anchor pearl cotton is used.

Each heart measures 1-1/4 inches tall by 1-3/8 inches wide when the same Size 12 thread is used.

The tassel at the end has a measurement of about 3-3/4 inches in length.

These bookmarks work up very quickly and easily, and whether you choose to tat one up in a variety of different colors, or to use just a couple of colors, they make an impressive gift for that book reader in your life!

Written out instructions are provided, as well as a chart/diagram for those of you who prefer that type of pattern.

Regarding the tassel – Want your tassel ends to be even?

When you’re ready to cut them evenly, first wrap them with a piece of scotch tape, sticky side out.

Do the wrapping at the top, near where you’ve tied it over one of the chains of the heart.

Then slide your tape down to where you want the tassel ends cut. Cut across the bottom of the tape.

Because the stick side is OUT, you’re not permanently attached and you can just continue sliding the tape off the tassel.

And you’ve used the edge of the tape to cut a straight line.

Here is the pattern
