Doilies and bookmarks

A few weeks ago I ordered some crochet thread and a book called Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts Lacy Crochet.  I really enjoy looking through it and want to make everything in it!  The doily above is from the book and the pattern is the Round Doily by Mayumi Kawai.  I used Artiste size 10 thread and a 1.5 mm hook.

This is the book along with the crochet thread I ordered.  I needed all of it lol.

Working on a tissue box cover/place mat from the book, pattern is by Sachiyo Fukao.

I finished the cross bookmarks this week, 100 all together!

Got a few more squares finished for this doily.  It will be a bigger version of the doily on the right.

Here is an orchid flower bookmark.  The pattern is the Crochet Orchid by MaryJ Handmade.


  1. Your bookmarks are absolutely beautiful!! And your tassels....well....they are to perfection. Do you have a favorite pattern that you follow or do you have a pattern for them? Love your site....and your work is gorgeous!!!!!

    1. Thank you so much! It's a twisted cord tassel. The page I learned it from is no longer available. I make mine a little bit different, the knot is hidden by the tassel. There are some bookmark patterns I'm going to write down soon and will include how I make the tassel.

    2. Hi. I love everything you do but I love the cross bookmark so much. Do you have the pattern to share?
