3. Mini Fish Appliqué

You'll love the story behind the design of this fish-shaped crochet bookmark. Designer Pan created these in honor of her brother, Jon Erikson. Jon was the first swimmer ever to cross the English Channel three times, so it's only appropriate that he be honored with a fish. While this pattern is perfect for bookmarks, you can use the fish for any project that calls for appliqué.
