Looking to brighten up your reading time?

Create some art and crochet a flower bookmark!

With a few supplies and a bit of practice, you can create your own special bouquet of flowers that not only can brighten your day, but also can keep your spot in your favorite book!

One of our volunteers, Sierra, has a step-by-step tutorial to help you crochet your own flower bookmark.

Be careful, though, you might want to create an entire garden!

Gather your supplies

The items below can be found at a local craft store, thrift shops, or big box stores.


  • 3 colors of medium weight acrylic yarn
  • 5.5 mm crochet hook (Or use the hook size suggested on the yarn wrapper)
  • Large plastic yarn needle
  • Scissors

Let’s Get Started!

Check out the step-by-step video to get a full understanding of how to complete this project. We will also include the pattern below.

If this is your first attempt at crocheting, we’ve also included some more resources. But don’t hesitate to get in-person instruction if you need it!

How did it go?

Hopefully, this project is just the beginning of your crochet adventures.

If you are looking for more resources, TL Yarn Crafts has a great crochet tutorial that is really slow. We also learned a lot from Double Dutch Crochet who has a great video about the magic ring. If you are still having trouble, stop in our Maker Studio and we can learn and explore together!

We hope you had fun playing along with us today! We’d love to see what you created. Tag us on Facebook, Instagram, and use #playalongsd. Or, bring your project along when you stop in to play!
