What materials did you use? Coats and Clark trilobal polyester embroidery thread (2 strands) in 403N Electric Yellow and 404N Electric Orange. I also added a little tail, just a Josephine chain with a cute little tassel on the end. This is a great video for how to make tassels: http://s991.photobucket.com/user/xstchntat/media/Tatting/Demos/MVI_1937.mp4.html

What are you most proud of? Working with the teeny tiny sewing thread. I'm very pleased with the finished result and I'm glad I stuck with it and finished this.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use different thread! After I got this thread, I saw neon sewing thread in cotton that was a bit thicker and I wish I'd bought that instead. I made this thread work, but keeping nice tension without snapping the thread was a serious pain with this polyester thread.

Your creative experiment with the neon sewing thread turned out beautifully! That's a very pretty bookmark, and for sure won't get lost easily with those bright colors.
