Off the Loom (a long time ago): Bookmarks

These are some bookmarks that I wove many years ago. I came across them recently and finally got around to cutting them apart and hemming them.

They're woven using an ecru cotton thread which is a little thicker than sewing thread with a sett of 30 ends per inch. The weft includes various embroidery flosses, mostly linen thread; the shiny blue one has a rayon thread in the weft. The width of the final piece is approx. 6.5 cm. Lengths of the individual bookmarks vary from 14 cm. to 20 cm.
