Pattern Description:

Since I live in Kansas, I thought I would do an Oz series of Bookmarks. Here is the Cowardly Lion Reading Character Bookmark for anyone who faces their fears and discovers true bravery.

Cowardly Lions "badge of Courage" that he got from the wizzard can hang outside the book to remind any reader that there is more story to go. His three-dimensional head with his mane also hang outside the top of the book.

What a delightful gift to give to anyone who loves to read. This is a fun bookmark to make. I had one customer tell me that she like to add them to gift packaging to spice up the packaging. The bookmark works up really quickly.

My mother taught me to make a chain stitch when I was in elementary school. I was hooked. Now, I enjoy making knit and crochet patterns that I love for others to learn these wonderful arts.
