Reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks inspired me to dig out the DNA bookmark I created some time ago. I love this design.
Two-dimensional photos don’t do it justice, if you ask me.
I experimented with some different techniques, lengths, and products, thinking I would publish this pattern.
Then it dawned on me that I might enter it in the Craft It Forward contest. I want to read the rules again and look at Sponsor products to see if I might incorporate some in the design. Sounds like a good weekend project, don’t you think?
It looks as though public voting helps determine contest winners. I don’t like that, but I may enter anyway. I like asking people to vote for my submission almost as much as I like brussels sprouts and lima beans.
Might you use a book that you’re reading to inspire an original bookmark design that you can enter into the contest and then donate to a Stitching for Literacy collection?
