We love everything cross stitch here at Book Riot. We’ve looked at literary cross stitch patterns and highlighted a few sweet cross stitch patterns for book lovers. One thing we haven’t done in a minute, however, is put together some of the amazing cross stitch bookmark designs. Even for those of us who are rabid dog ears (me) readers, there is still a need for a big bookmark or two. Why not learn a skill – or better yet hone the ones you have – with these cross stitch bookmark designs?
(And if you want more bookish trick, check out our collection of literary cross stitch patterns, Lit stitch: 25 cross stitch patterns for book lovers.)
Bonus: most of them are very affordable to buy, all are instant downloads, and you can grab the thread, needles, and canvas (tip: for bookmarks you will probably want to buy plastic canvas. for a more durable finished product!). If you decide you’re going to do it all with this hobby, you can get a nice bookish needle keeper as well.
I included a bit of everything in this roundup: bookish motifs, non-bookish motifs, recognizable art, etc. There is something for all types of embroiderers.
