Hi! It's Maggie from Smashed Peas and Carrots once more! These days i desired to talk about a fast and simple tutorial for how to make your personal textile Bookmarks. I routinely have about 3 publications on my nightstand whenever you want that I am examining and recently i have already been asking myself the reason why I do not have cuter bookmarks. Usually I grab any scrap paper or receipt I discover laying around and make use of that…well, forget about! Starting now, I am going to have quite bookmarks which make myself happy to get a hold of my web page again :-)
This is what you'll want to create your own Fabric Bookmarks:
- Scrap textile calculating 2 1/4" x 6" per bookmark
- Card stock scraps calculating 1 1/2" x 5 1/4"
- Lace trim calculating around 5 ins
- Coordinating thread
This project is a great scrap buster and you may utilize any colors or textile lines (and blending and matching fabric patterns means they are also prettier for me!) I'm presently in loooove with the Farm Girl type of cottons from Riley Blake Fabrics, i am talking about how attractive are these designs!!
We cut the straight back of each and every bookmark together single material measuring 2 1/4" x 6" after which used smaller pieces and sewed all of them collectively making use of a 1/4 inches seam allowance to measure 2 1/4" x 6" for front part.
Next i personally use a set of pinking shears and trimmed the most truly effective side of both front side and right back materials.
However placed a small piece of trim that I folded into a "v" form at the top wrong side of the back material and put leading part fabric ahead (incorrect sides collectively!) Utilizing a 1/4 inch seam allowance, we began stitching the pieces of material collectively starting at the end of 1 long side and working my means all over book mark towards bottom of the various other lengthy side, making the bottom open.
Using the bottom part open, I slid the little bit of scrapbook report inside and the sewed the opening shut making use of a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Finally, making use of my pinking shears, we trimmed the rest of the 3 sides regarding the done bookmark carefully as to not reduce into the seams.
