I zigzagged about 1/4 in from the edge around the full rectangle with a tight stitch. This will limit the unravelling that can take place.
I included a bit of lace at the top and a navy gros grain ribbon which can be used as a place marker as I stitched around.
I had to look up some embroidery stitches and find a needle and thread but eventually found all three.
I put 3 hearts in red along the length of the bookmark. My stitching is not the greatest but it is the sentiment that I love her which is important.
Say I love you to those precious to you today.
It is ready to be mailed today.
