Fabric Bookmark tutorial - Sisters, What!

Fabric Bookmark tutorial

**UPDATE find updated fabric bookmark tutorial HERE

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
pinking shears
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!

  2. I definitely need to make some of these because I always lose my spot in a book, or maybe I should just make some to distract my son! ha! This would be perfect to use up my scraps of cute fabric that I can't seem to throw away!
