Don’t cute the yarn. From this point on, you’ll start making the ridge of the bookmark.
Pierce trough the first and fourth stitch, make a slip stitch.

Tuck the end of the ridge of the bookmark into the center and sew it.
Note: Before sewing this item to the ridge of a bookmark, you can first embed the tail and hind legs of the unicorn on it (see the items below), and then sew the back to the ridge bookmark. Both methods are correct.
Follow the steps below 20 repetitions up (20sc up).

Eyes start on the 7th row and finish with 9. The distance between the eyes is 7 stitches.
If you have glitter with glue, apply it straight away to the mane with a pin or needle.
- prepare a stand for mixing, e.g. A4 sheet folded twice in half,
- mix glitter with glue using e.g. a pin,
- put the prepared mass on the bookmark with a pin.
If the prepared mass solidifies during application, add a little glue and mix again, you can also sprinkle some glitter.
When the bookmark is dry, bend it and rub your finger over the places where the mass was applied. Then they will not be stiff with glue and you will get rid of excess glitter.
For painting you can use: blusher, fabric pastels, acrylic paints. I used pink.
Apply the blush with an ear stick or cotton pad.
Sorry for my English, if somewhere has a grammatical mistakes!
