These hand painted canvas needlepoint bookmarks are from Princely Collections and make wonderful gifts.
Hand-painted on 18 mesh canvas, they have a fabric border and back. The back is attached only at the top. Stitch the bookmark and then attach the back using glue, fusible interfacing or slip stitch. They come in a sturdy plastic sleeve which you should keep to present the finished needlework.
The one pictured above is the one I bought for myself. The Chinese symbol is the one for strength or vigor. You can see them all pictured here (scroll down below the first section to see them).
I like them as gifts for a couple of reasons. Someone could give one to you as a charming project for you to make. You could buy one and make it quickly as a gift for someone else.
They also make glasses cases, scissors cases, and coin purses which are prefinished as well.
