Kokeshi Bookmark

This was the cutest bookmark I think I had seen in a long while. But after finding out it is in an entirely different language (although translated into English) I was bummed out. Because there were parts of it that I just didn't understand what was meant to be done. There was a hand drawn graph that was a little bit of help to me but it did take me a while to get it done.

I don't have very good Embroidery skills, but I did try my best. I didn't do the little flowers on the bottom of the Kimono and my 'Hair' doesn't look as good as the Designer's Original, I still think it looks cute. And I hope my swap recipient thinks so as well (Fingers Crossed). At any rate, I did enjoy making it because I love bookmarks. This was done all in size 10 thread.

If you would like to make one for yourself, Here is the Free Pattern: Kokeshi Bookmark. Thank you designer for sharing your pattern!
