Crochet book closures

I wasn't really sure what to call these, book closures, page markers, maybe even book marks of sorts. The lady who runs Sewing for Charity Australia had a whole heap of address books that she intends to cover and put in our Christmas packs for nursing homes this year. We were originally going to do something pretty with elastic to go around them but then decided it would be easy enough to crochet something pretty.

It took a few goes to work out what was going to be suitable and fit right and in the end were pretty simple to make.
I crocheted a chain long enough (with a little give) to go around the address books, and then with a little fiddling was able to make the flower without having to fasten and start again. Flowers for the ladies and some plain circles for the gentlemen all finished of by tying a button to the centre.

At this stage the books haven't been covered so not able to show how they look finished but as soon as they are I will pop back in with a photo.

Thanks for visiting
Lis :)
