Fabric Bookmarks by Korby, BlondieBlueEyes

Korby used scraps to create lots of fabric bookmarks. She writes, “My kids helped pick the scraps of fabric that they wanted also they picked the ribbons. They love the bookmarks and I had a really fun time making them.”

We like bookmarks around here! You can add a little fusible interfacing in the middle if you want, and embroidery is always a nice addition. Check out this post for lots of great tutorial links (under Bec’s photo). Have you made fabric bookmarks? Share links, favorite tutorials and related blog posts in the comments!

    I love how sweet and simple these are, and how fun these would be to make. Especially since I can personalize these so easily to suit any whim I could ever have. And so much fun to find a great project I can do with my children. Love it!

    I’ve made bookmarks with one fabric on each side, some fusible interfacing, pinked edges and a ribbon on the top. I stitch the fabrics together 1/4″ from the edge and then pink the edges.

    I’ve also used leftover strip sets for bookmarks: I cut a 2-2.5″ wide section of a strip set which was made with various red reproduction fabrics. The strips were various widths, 1/2″ to 1.25″, so the bookmark had a “liberated” look to it.

    Another way to make a bookmark is to use selvages, stitched onto a scrap of fabric as a base. Trim and stitch to a pretty fabric, tucking a ribbon into the top.
