"Garden Treasures Bookmark - Iris" was stitched on 14-count Aida using DMC 6-strand cotton floss. Kreinik Metallics Blending Filament highlights selected stitches.

The front and back design were stitched on two separate pieces of fabric, then combined by sewing them together. The front features an iris in full bloom, and the back features the popular sentiment, "Bloom where you're planted" using our Outline alphabet (Alphabet 11, filled in) and a smaller version of our "It's a Fine Line" alphabet (Alphabet 06).

Border stitches create a false lace pattern, and metallic stitches add bright sparkle to the border stitching.

Precut bookmarks can also be adapted to stitch the Iris bookmark pattern.
