School Themed Bookmarks

free school themed bookmark crochet patterns

Here in Maryland, our kids start school the day after labor day. With tomorrow being their first day of school, I thought it would be fun to make school themed crochet bookmarks for teacher gifts. It's hard to believe that my kids are already going into seventh, second and first grades.

These patterns make great bookmarks. You could also use them as appliques and sew them onto other crochet items. I'm even thinking about making two larger pencils and turning them into a pencil pouch. If I do, I'll post the pattern. Enjoy!

Eyes

Make 2

Begin with white yarn:

Rnd 1: magic ring, ch 2, 12 dc, join with sl st in top of first dc [12]

Switch to charcoal yarn:

Rnd 2: ch 1, sc in each st, join and fasten off leaving a long tail. Use one of the charcoal tail ends to thread the yarn through the center to make a pupil.

Use the yarn tails and your tapestry needle to sew the eyes onto the head. Refer to the photo above for placement. Make sure you connect the two eyes with the charcoal yarn to make it look like the worm is wearing glasses. Use extra charcoal yarn to add the smile.
