- Various fabric scraps, varying between 1-2", must be at least 2" wide
- Small scrap of backing fabric, at least 2" x 7"
- Fusible Interfacing
- rotary cutter and mat OR scissors
Note: Since I am making a lot of these, I am showing the method I use to produce several at one time.
Arrange scraps in pleasing order and sew together. You can either sew them with straight edges, or cut the scraps at small angles. When finished, you'll should have a piece that is at least 7" long, but not longer than 9", and at least 2" wide.
Iron all seams in the same direction. Turn fabric over and press well from the front. Iron on fusible interfacing. If you wish to have a floppier bookmark, you can skip this step.Step 3:
Cut one edge of the piece and use that side as a guideline for you next cuts. Cut into 2" wide strips. Depending on how wide your piece is, you will end up with several different bookmarks.
Cut backing fabric to the same size as the front of the bookmark. I used muslin since it's cheap and I had to make a lot of these. You can use any fabric that you have available. Using a 1/4" seam allowance, sew around all four sides, leaving a hole for turning.
Trim corners, turn out bookmark, and press.
Topstitch around entire bookmark, making sure that you have closed the opening.
et Voila! A plethora of bookmarks
