- *Interfacing (optional)
- Sewing Machine
- Pinking Shears
- *Embellishments (optional)
- *Fray Check (optional)
Step 1: Cut out fabric and fuse interfacing.
First cut out 2 pieces of fabric at 2″ x 6.5″.
*To add firmness to your bookmark you can add a medium weight interfacing to one side of the fabric. Simply follow the instructions that came with your interfacing to fuse it to the back side of one of your pattern pieces.
Step 2: Sewing.
Now you will take each pattern piece and place WRONG SIDES TOGETHER and pin. This is going to give us a stylized bookmark!
Now you will sew at ½” seam allowances all the way around your bookmark.
*If adding a tassel embellishments or something that inserts into the seam of the bookmark, be sure to sandwich the embellishment between the 2 pattern pieces’ pin in place and then sew around the entire bookmark. As you can see below we added fun tassels!
Step 3: Finishing!
Now you will trim around your entire bookmark using your pinking shears. Not only does this finish the edges to keep them from unraveling it also gives you a fun zigzag styled edge!
*If you would like to ensure that your bookmark doesn’t unravel at all you can also treat the edges with some fray check.
You are done! It is sew easy and is a great way to use up any extra fabric you have lying around!
