|We have a thing for fabric, of course, but books almost rival that love. Give your favorite bookworm something special this holiday season.|
|Handmade Hardwood Bookmark
Bruno shows how to make this unique bookmark (with permanent markers or a wood burner) in his Handmade Hardwood Bookmark Tutorial via Curbly.
Anna created a Reading Companion Tutorial on her Marmadaisy blog. The Companion is a fabric bookmark with an attached eyeglass holder.
|Chicken Scratch Bookmarks
Kerri’s Chicken Scratch Bookmarks Tutorial from Kerri Made is a fun way to gussy up your gingham (and it can quickly become addictive!).
Here are just a handful of fabrics we love for some of these projects. Click on the fabric images to visit the Sew,Mama,Sew! shop:

|Reading is Sexy Shirts, Mugs & More
buyolympia.com sells Sarah Utter’s Reading is Sexy Shirts, mugs, magnets and more. We also love the Future Librarian onesies (and the Crafty Lady tees, for that matter).
Ashley from Artisan Sweets has a delectable Homemade Marshmallow Recipe, the perfect topper for a big mug of cocoa paired with a good read.
