Pattern Description:

Since I live in Kansas, I thought I would do an Oz series of Bookmarks. Here is the Dorothy and Toto Reading Character Bookmark for anyone who loves adventure. The pattern includes an option of Toto in a basket.

Toto can hang outside the book to remind any reader that there is more story to go. Her three-dimensional head with braids hangs outside the book.

What a delightful gift to give to anyone who loves to read. This is a fun bookmark to make.
