How To Make A: Bookmark

Hi Everyone! 

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")
Button (optional)

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. 

I added a button to mine.

If you give it a try let me know!!

Handmade Heywood!!

Hi and welcome to my updated blog!!

I haven't posted a blog post on here since 2013, with studying and working it got put on the back burner. So with an updated look, slightly different content and the opening of my Etsy shop it seemed like the right time and I am really excited to start posting again. 

In January 2015 I decided to leave my full time job and set up my own business (Handmade Heywood) selling beautiful handmade items, and custom orders. Such as, Make Up Brush Rolls, Passport and ID Wallets, Headphone Cases, Tote Bags and coming soon will be a range of bespoke dresses. I have an Ebay Shop and most recently I opened an Etsy Shop. 

I think restarting my blog will give me a chance to showcase my items, as well as that I can still post beauty blogs, tutorials and DIY crafting posts. 

Thanks For Stopping By!
