Oh... and I used 100% ww cotton for all of them.
My apologies to Cupcake (CrochetRoo), I didn't realize when I first made them that the turtle and dinosaur are in her etsy shop. Please check them out http://www.etsy.com/...p?user_id=44224
These are some bookmarks I made for KristieMN's toy drive. All images are clickable.
I added to the tail to make it a longer bookmark...
I adjusted the pattern a bit. I made the eyes smaller to accomodate the size of the safety eyes I had on hand. I also created a backing to hide the backs of the safety eyes to protect the fingers, etc...
I made the turtle and dinosaur by copying a picture I found on the net.
EDIT: Cupcake/Crochetroo has the patterns in her Etsy shop... I didn't follow her patterns exactly as I was using a picture I had found on Flickr as a guide, plus I was using WW cotton and didn't want them to be too big. It wasn't until after I had made them that I was told by my DD that the patterns were available.
I didn't do the tail the same as the pattern... instead of adding the curlie end I just slip stitched back up the chain... I thought the boys might not like the "girlie" curls. LOL
