I love a fun, easy project. With a little scrap fabric, you can sew these sweet fabric bookmarks. They are colorful, fun, and a cheap thrill.
They would make a great favor to a reading book club or at a bridal shower. My bookmarks doubled as name tags (as I painted everyone’s name on them that attended) at my Spoonful Lab. You can do the same or keep them just as bookmarks with the simplicity of the heart. I think both are great options.
Here is how I made mine. I started with little scrap pieces of fabric about 2″-3″ in height. I just folded the fabric a little and sewed a straight line down the middle to create about 5″ long strips of fabric. This made a haphazard ruffle effect that I love.
Next, I cut out a bunch of flat burlap hearts. I made sure to cut them just a little smaller than my ruffled fabric pieces.
I then pinned a heart into the middle of a ruffled fabric strip and sewed around the outer edge of the heart. Contrasting thread color looks best! You could also use another fabric instead of the burlap. I love the contrast of the dull burlap color with the pop of bright color behind it. The texture of the burlap is also very fun.
I left all the edges raw because I like the frayed look, so my bookmark was then done! With the holidays coming this idea would even be cool as a way to mark presents. There are lots of possibilities, if you just add a little imagination!
