Bookmarks for Kids - 5 Free Crochet Patterns reviewed by My Hobby is Crochet

Fun crochet bookmarks, great as student gifts.
*Disclaimer: This post includes affiliate links.

These bookmarks  were made by me using free patterns found the web with some own changes.

The idea of making these cute little projects started by the request of a good friend of mine, who is a teacher and also a fellow crafter, but lately having not much time to crochet.
Devoted to her work and students, she thought to give small crochet surprises to her first grade students having good results and a nice behavior.
Wanting to give her a helping hand in this project, I've asked myself what would be cute, but at the same time useful for the little students, something that they will love!
These bookmarks are just a part of my surprises for her students.

2) Turtle Tales Bookmark free pattern by Stephanie Osborne via Ravelry
Update July 2015: It seems that the designer decided to remove the pattern from Ravelry.
