Shepherd Hook Bookmarks

There was a question from Tatknot in a comment to my last post. I had mentioned wanting to make some shepherd hook bookmarks and she wondered what they looked like.

Here's a picture. They are about 5" long and flat so they slip nicely into a book without any bulk added when the book is closed.

You've probably seen something similar but called by a different name. Here's what it looks like inside a book.

The motif is just a simple clover pattern with a charm. I found the hooks at Joanns and they only cost about $1.50 or so.

Thanks for asking about them. I'm sure others wondered what I was talking about too!


  1. I enjoy reading your blog and now I must no longer delay letting you know. Your Shepherd Hook bookmarks are lovely, simple and elegant. Thank you for the info. Joanne's is on my list! Thank you. Karen in OR

  2. Very cute. Great for small gifts.

  3. Thanks so much for the picture. I've seen them before, but never in a book. I like the way they are made and the tatted motif is a perfect addition. Great idea!


Since you're already here, why not take a second and say hello or leave a comment? I'd love to hear from you. I read and enjoy all the comments. Thanks!
