They embroider as one piece, you add the two magnetic strips and the top folds back to catch the pages in a book.
Things I'm learning with embroidery projects--no matter how small you think the project is, always start with a FULL BOBBIN. And each one of these bookmarks takes almost a full bobbin.
My non-embroidery friends are amazed that these are just thread--no fabric. I love the different designs.
My granddaughter, Paige, is here (school's out in Texas the whole week of Thanksgiving) and she wanted to make one for her teacher. So she chose purple thread for the background and away we went. She couldn't believe the sewing machine would make lace by itself. I love to share my sewing and crafts with her. She's always willing to try my projects AND I get to do some fun stuff while she's here. Brother, Jake, is into computers, so that keeps him busy.
The picture is not too clear UNLESS you click on it and that magnifies it. You can then see the images better. Don't know why. I'm hoping Santa gets me a new camera for Christmas.
A few more stocking stuffers done!
