Book Thongs

January 3rd, 2005 · 17 Comments · FOs (Finished Objects)

Now that nearly everyone on the Crochetville Wish List has received the book thongs I made (except one who is away for the holidays, but by now I think she knows there’s one waiting for her back home *wink*), I wanted to share photos of them. Also, many thanks go out to Deneen for graciously organizing the Wish List.

I first saw book thongs at Waldenbooks and then I noticed them at Books-A-Million, too. If you Google book thongs, you’ll find a lot of truly beautiful handmade ones. Intrigued and wanna make your very own book thong? Bead Studio has an excellent and simple tutorial.

I used hemp jewelry cord, glass beads, and silver-colored spacer beads.

    Happy New Year, Donna!
    Your book thongs are beautiful. So that’s what they’re called. I bought some last year made with very thin wire but I think your hemp ones are better. Hmmmm…now you’ve got me thinking…

    HEY I see mine!!! In the bottom pic. It’s light green, yup that’s it! hehe

    Thanks again, it’s sooo cute. It’s in my Hip to Crochet book at the moment.

    I knew that had to be hemp cord.

    Naturally, when I see the word “thong” I have to click and check what’s up. So, color me a bit disappointed at first glance, because I was wondering what a yarn thong would do for me. Heck, I’m game, you know? Anyways, I have to say that you do wonders with yarn. It’s kind of exciting. But don’t tell anyone I said so, okay?

    Thank you for my book thong, Donna. :) My other books are very jealous, so I’m off to the tutorial right now.

    Those book thongs are beautiful! I wish I had some hemp cord right now to make them.

    What a clever idea! Pretty and easy to make – thank you for sharing!

    What a clever thing! Must find that hemp I have floating around here somewhere…

    What a good idea! Your book thongs look great.

    You remembered :D (I did some snooping on my own because I was anxious to see what they were all about)
    Thanks for posting this! I had no idea you had made so many. I saw mine in one of the photos. :)

    Now that I have a book thong, I guess I will actually have to read Lord of the Rings

    Thanks again!
