Fabric Bookmarks


Here is a simple sewing project that is quick, easy and FUN! It's a great project for a beginner.

You can find the instructions from Sew, Mama, Sew! projects. I actually smooshed together a couple of different tutorials. I liked the button from one and the pinking from another. I used interfacing to give the bookmarks some heft. Line each side of the bookmark with medium interfacing, or use 3 layers of light-weight interfacing.

What a great idea for leftover scraps!!!! Love them. I'm always (no don't say it.....bending!!!) the page corners of my books. These would come in so handy.

Looks like the perfect accessory for a good book, a rainy/snow day, and a cup of tea!*

How cute!!! I once made a bracelet with a very similar technique -- just add a buttonhole opposite the button and you've got it!
