A tatted bookmark that you can find in the dark...

using DMC Traditions yellow & Flora Red,,,I made this bookmark that will & does glow in the dark.  Just any normal thread can be done to do this. So now finding the book you want with out waking up your husband or other half trying to find your book when you can't sleep isn't such a problem to get it to go in the other room to read. This was taken with my camera set on blacklight setting. So you see it does work.

What a neat idea, Bsotf! How do you make it glow in the dark? Do you add a special thread? Or go through a special process?

Suztats,
I didn't mix any special thread with it. I just used shook my head & this idea fell out on the floor...so I had to try it. Which it worked. I'm going to tweek it a bit before I tell you how I done it.
