Do you have a someone who loves to read? this is a perfect gift for that special someone who loves to read - I'm one of those people who loves to read but I'm always looking for a bookmark and grab whatever scrap of paper is on hand. I love these bookmarks because they are so fun and make for great bookmarks.
First gather your supplies:
Two coordinating fat quarter of fabric
ribbon (I used the vintage ribbon)
medium or heavy weight pellon stabilizer
1. First cut your one from each of your coordinating fabric: I cut mine at 8x3 (but you can do whatever size you want)
Then cut your stabilizer: you want it about a 1/4 inch smaller than your fabric
Ribbon: about 4 inches
2. Layer all your pieces:
First fabric piece (face down on table)
ribbon (folded in half while sticking out)
The other coordinating fabric face up
3. Pin and sew your pieces together around the perimeter-sew with about 1/2 inch seam allowance. If you like, an inch in to add a quilted look.
4. Last step, take your pinking shears and cut around the edge, and your finished!
quick and easy and awesome!
