To help encourage my girls to read, I am sending them back to school with new bookmarks. These bookmarks are super easy to make and take less than 15 minutes to put together.
Easy Bookmark DIY
This project is for sewers all levels, especially children!
Skill Level- 1 Button
- felt and scraps
- 6″ piece of ribbon
- colorful thread
- heat erasing pen
- Mod Podge or small piece of interfacing
- pinking sheers *optional
**Since I know that many of you like to print out a hard copy of the article to use as a reference while sewing, I have created an optional PDF that’s optimized for printing and ad-free. Find more here. The blog post and video are totally free to read, print, and sew! The PDF tutorial & download for $2 is totally optional.
This easy bookmark DIY is perfect for back to school, teacher gifts, or really any time of year.
Quick Tip: If your felt is really soft, consider giving it a spritz of spray starch. It will add some stiffness without making it hard as a rock!
Encouraging children to read is so rewarding. Watching my girls read always brings a smile to my face. I love talking to them about the story later and hearing their version. This easy bookmark can act as a great placeholder when life is calling!

This is such a cute and clever idea. Great for my grandson who is in the 4th grade. I’m tucking a couple in with his birthday present.
