Having a Blast
Love your bookworm! No, I think the picots look hairy enough.
What a nice bookwork. I wouldn't cut picots but I have recently seen a technique which involves layered or ruffled picots (by Gina Bummett) that might make him look hairier.
What a cute idea! I think it looks good like it is, but if you want to try how it would look with cut picots you could make a short bookworm and try it. The layered or ruffle picots that Bernice suggested could look good, too. This is such a cute idea I might try something like it myself. I think the grandkids would like them :-)
I think it's adorable!!! :) I think for a little motion maybe if you switched the colors from side to side every other one, or every other 2 it might give a wavy impression. :)
Awesome bookmark :). Think the picots are just fine :).
It's a fuzzy worm! :)
Maybe he is a millipede? I love his 2 colors and his big eyes!
I've made millipedes with the Fancy Picot Stitch. If you want a very frilly, furry fellow, that may be the way to go. But, it think it's too dimensional for a bookmark. You could make your picots just a bit longer, or double them up on the side for a fuller look, but I think he's fine just the way he is.
I have made this bookworm bookmark several times. the pattern wiggles very well by changing the size of the rings back and forth http://web.archive.org/web/20041124203955/http://www.domesticarts.com/Patterns/snake.htm
