A Twist On Redundancy! (Motifs #9 and 10 /25)

So, of course, I'm still stuck on these simple bookmarks.  I like them, though! :-P  Well, today I decided to try it in LizBeth #156, Juicy Watermelon since I hadn't even touched the thread yet.  Well, there was something I didn't like (I don't remember what), so I decided to add a button.  I thought it would sit nicely at the top of the book (as long as I add a dot of glue for added security)... Then... I thought about something ...The button fits into the opposite end of the bookmark!  Voila! 'Tis a summery bracelet for some vibrant little girl!  Maybe tomorrow I'll add a few more rings and chains and see if I can't make one of these for myself --or maybe an adult with normal-sized wrists? LOL.

I didn't stop there, though... Saw the plastic bobbin full o' Fairy Dance from LadyDustyRoses's Shop and couldn't resist...

Normally, I don't like using variegated as both needle and ball thread, but I went outside of my little box today and, ya know what?  It didn't end up as badly as I expected!

I like what you've done with the button. Great idea for a bracelet!

Oh, I love the idea of a button on the end of a bookmark. I must try this one. Of course, if I make all of them long enough to double as bracelets, I'll always have a bookmark handy! It's lovely and a truly great idea! The Juicy Watermelon thread made up great in it. Thank you for sharing it.
