I figured it was time to stop using scraps of paper to mark my place in all my books, since the scraps tend to end up lost on the floor anyway. I’ve seen origami pocket bookmarks before and thought, why not do something similar with fabric? They can fold up or get shoved in a purse without the risk of being ripped or bent like paper, and they’re easily customizable!
Things you’ll need:
- Wool or felt cut into two 3″ hearts
- Chalk/removable marking tool
After cutting out your hearts, draw or write whatever you’d like to embroider on the front of your bookmark.
Trace the chalk outline, and straight-stitch the bottom two inches of the heart, like the photos below.
And just like that, you have a cute and unique bookmark – great for gifts, or kids’ craft parties!
