daddy get your gun

My father is impossible to buy for. But, he reads like a maniac. Lately he has been reading nothing but book after book written about Custer and the Indian Wars. I know nothing about this except it was a great opportunity to make another bookmark. This time a manly version. I found this pattern at Urban Threads and got busy:

"read!" bookmark WIP

After stitching so many flowery and girly sort of things, I must say that stitching a gun was pretty odd but oddly liberating and fun.

read! bookmark

I was really pleased with how it turned out and thankfully he was too.
Happy Birthday Daddy!

read! bookmark

and by the way…these are now for sale in the shop if you want one of your own!
