How to Make Bookmarks from Fabric - Cutesy CraftsThis super easy sewing project is perfect for beginners or kids! This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine. My kids LOVE changing out their bookmarks throughout the year or for each season! This is the perfect project for a beginner or even a kid to make! This year my boys thought it would be fun to make some bookmarks for Christmas and give them to their friends with a cute Christmas book.

How to Make Bookmarks from Fabric
Not knowing what I would do with them, I took them home until I came up with an idea. I finally found a use for some of them and made a tutorial for how to make bookmarks from fabric. They are completely no-sew fabric bookmarks, so anyone can make them. If you like this project, make sure you also check out my DIY Bookmarks post.

Iron it down and let it cool. If your handkerchiefs are thin, like mine were, use a piece or parchment paper to protect your ironing board from the interfacing.
Hello Friends! Winner winner! I had 30 minutes before I had to pick up the kids from daycare. By the time I walked out the door to get them I had thought up this project, whipped up a prototype and Instagrammed it! Know someone who loves to read?
I love giving a little something handmade with something store bought. It makes it just a little more personal and special. These bookmarks can be made from fabric scraps, take no time at all and would be great paired with a book or bookstore gift card. I made about two dozen of these, just using pieces of fabric from my scrap box. Cut one of the interfacing squares in half diagonally and save one half for your next bookmark. Iron the triangle of interfacing onto the fabric you want for the corner. Iron the square of interfacing onto the piece you want to face the front behind the corner.
Do you have lots of fabric scraps? Me too! I have scraps from cutting pencil cases and coin purses for my Shop, plus I have scraps of the interfacing I use in the pencil cases. I started by cutting all my scraps into strips — two matching strips of each fabric. I just used a rotary cutter and cutting mat to keep them approximately square. They are around inches or cm wide and around inches or cm long.
