To celebrate the opening of my Etsy shop I will be offering a free bookmark with every sale, so for today's blog I thought I would show you how I made them in-case you would like to have a go at making your own.
With the holiday season slowly creeping up on us they would make great stocking fillers and are quick and inexpensive to make.
You will need:
2 pieces of fabric (7" by 2.5")
1 piece of wadding (7.5" by 2")
1 piece of ribbon (3.5")
Step One: Place the wadding on to of 1 of the pieces of fabric, at this point you can add some quilting to it, for mine I just kept it simple with some straight lines , but feel free to add whatever design you want.
Step Two: Place the other piece of fabric on top with nice sides together, add your piece of ribbon in between the 2 pieces of fabric. Pin it together to stop it from moving around.
Step Three: Stitch round 3 sides leaving one small side open so you can turn it round. Turn it around.
Step Four: Fold the raw edges in and top stitch around the bookmark to seal the open edge. Give it a quick press and your good to go.
If you give it a try let me know!!
