It didn't take very long at all to make up, but I confess that I am crochet pattern illiterate. I usually have to work at something and tear it apart several times before I get it right. The fan bookmark was no exception. The next one won't be nearly as difficult now that I've got the idea down.
I'm giving the bookmark to a friend who is celebrating a birthday. I think she'll appreciate a little home made giftie. At least, I hope she does.
