Pattern Description:

I made this reading character bookmark to commemorate Jill's historic climb up the hill. This will be a favorite of any reader.

Jill's pail can hang outside the book to remind any reader that there is more story to go. Her three-dimensional head with braids and scarf hang outside the book.

This is a fast and fun pattern to make. This makes a quick gift for a reader.

It would make a wonderful award for any academic achievement or to give a graduate to acknowlegde that reading is a life long habit. I have one customer who loves to add these as package adornments to spruce up her packages.
