this past week my sister made a bunch of these adorable little fabric bookmarks for my mom, and surprised me by making some for me too!
i didn’t make them, so no, there’s no tutorial, but just by looking a them i bet you can see how easy they would be to make. (spoken by someone who can barely work a sewing machine, haha!) there’s a heart sewn on the front, and the long strip of fabric is folded in the middle & trimmed at the bottom so that the bookmark is double-sided. it’s sewn with right-sides facing out, so there’s no fuss over trying to invert it.
and did i mention how darn cute they are?! i love them. they would be so fun to give away as valentines – the heart is just perfect for that! or they could be used for…
…your favorite love stories! i use plural because i have several favorites. but the one i’ve read most recently – it was given to me by my sister-in-law because she loved it so much and wanted to share – (thank heavens for awesome sisters and sisters-in law!!) is called Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson, and i have to tell you that i absolutely loved it!!! gosh, i stayed up all night reading it. if you love books that make your heart pitter-patter, then you should definitely read this one!!
