We love to read in our house, and are constantly losing bookmarks. I am always trying to figure out new ways to make bookmarks to add to our collection. This fabric bookmark is a perfect quick and easy project. My kids love picking out the fabric to use for their bookmarks.
The only materials needed for this project is some scraps of fabric, interfacing, and thread. Since this project uses small strips of fabric, it is good for using up leftovers from other projects.
To begin you need to cut out two 8in by 3in pieces of fabric and one 7in by 2in piece of interfacing.
Iron the interfacing to the wrong side of one of the fabric pieces.
Place the pieces of fabric together with the right sides facing each other.
Sew the two pieces of fabric together with the stitches just around the edge of the interfacing. Make sure to leave a section open for turning the bookmark.
Once you have finished sewing the fabric together trim off the corners. This will make the corners look nicer once it has been turned.
Turn the bookmark right side out and press. I like to use a chopstick to help turn and shape the corners.
After it has been pressed sew around the edges of the bookmark to close up the opening and finish the bookmark.
This fabric bookmark is a fun easy craft to make. They also make great gifts. My kids are excited to have new bookmarks in all their favorite fabrics.
