True Crime and Red Wine with evidence markers cross stitched bookmark design


Thread Numbers

Evidence Marker Alphabet designs. 

Hello everyone,

This week I have a request from a friend. She loves to relax with a glass of red wine while listening to true crime podcasts or reading true crime books so we thought it would be fun to mix these two loves together in a bookmark. So when she has finished her chapter she can pop this little bookmark in to keep her place for next time.

I have also included an alphabet to be used on the evidence marker in the main design. In this way you could use the first initial of the person who will receive this if you are making a gift as an easy customization. Though any letter or number will do if you don't have anyone particular in mind.

I have not included white in the design inside the wine glass. You may stitch this if you like or if you are stitching the design on coloured aida to ensure the glass stands out. I left it off so that on white or light coloured aida the lack of a block of stitching makes the glass look more transparent and also makes the design really quick to sew as the bulk of the design is backstitch which I usually find very quick to do.

If you are a fan of true crime podcasts to listen to while cross stitching here are a few of my favourites to listen to:

My Favorite Murder - A true crime comedy podcast hosted by Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark where they talk about true crime and also a slice of life. I am very fond of the positive attitude towards mental heath, medication and therapy The fanbase of this podcast call themselves 'Murderinos' 

Last Podcast on the left - This podcast has a lot of true crime comedy content but if you fancy a lighter change check out the episodes on conspiricy theories, bigfoot, creepypasta and strange news. Theres something for most people in this podcast and all episodes have easy comedy banter throughout. 

Lore - Lore is a podcast delving into folklore. Each story is well explained and researched. I find each one a fascinating listen as the stories are varied throughout the podcasts long run. 

Casefile - This true crime podcast deep dives into each true crime tale. With detailed descriptions throughout the story.
This isn't a comedy podcast and can occasionally give some details of disturbing topics but for someone interested in true crime these podcasts are a great introduction to a great amount of cases.
