Keepin’ It Super Simple!
Let’s face it, with a last name like Valentine – It’s a big holiday in my house! So, I am starting my projects and thought that I would share a super simple one that will help eat up a few scraps.
Be Mine Bookmark
This project is for sewers all levels.
Skill Level- 1 Button
- fabric scraps
- Mod Podge
- Cut 1 piece of fabric and 1 felt 6 1/2″ long x 2 1/4″ wide. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to your pressed fabric to ”stiffen” the fabric and give it more texture. Reserve felt for step 4.
- To personalize my bookmark, I created a small patch by layering felt and fabric. Then added a few decorative stitches found standard on “Ellie”. (love her!) Feel free to do this by hand. Get creative- maybe one large initial, a heart, xoxo… anything works! And if you don’t want to sew this part, print off something from clip art and Mod Podge it to the face of book mark. Let’s face it- Mod Podge Rocks!
- Position and stitch your patch to the face of your bookmark. I used straight stitch but feel free to use those fun stitches on your machine!
- Then layer the felt behind your front and sandwich your ribbon along the top center. Join all layers together with a simple stitch. Be sure to back-stitch over the ribbon for extra strength.
This is the perfect way to use up old left over fabric.
Remember, Keep It Super Simple!!
