I seem to be on a bit of a bookmark making run at the moment, I started with some folded paper ones and moved on to a fabric one, then while making some crochet squares the other day an idea came to mind – lets try a crochet one!.
I’ve had some green wool on my desk for a while now and the shade of the green gave me the idea to try and make a Yoda themed book buddy. So I got making some squares and got folding them! After I made the squares and got them all folded all I need to do was make some black eyes and get them attached.
After this Yoda success I think there may be a few more of these buddies…….
