TAST Running stitch - pattern darned bookmark
Here is a little pattern darning bookmark I worked several years ago, using a simple running stitch action to create the design. The chart is my own, so you may use it freely. Pattern darning is also very suitable for kids to do as they can easily see where to go next, you could simplify the designs onto a larger grid for them. I used perle threads in this example.
