A few weeks ago I was scrolling scrolling along ravelry looking for bookmark patterns and I came across this elephant by Katie Young at Jelly Designs. Isn’t it so cuuuuute!?

I posted it to my Facebook and immediately I got a request from my sister-in-law asking me for a piggy bookmark. I said yes really quickly, but then when I went looking I couldn’t find a pig!

I worked it in thread so it would lay flat for a bookmark, but I’m sure you could make this as an applique with any yarn and coordinated hook size.
