What you will need: How to Make a Heart Fabric Bookmark
- Pattern you can get by clicking on this link
- Scraps of fabric
- Standard sewing supplies
Step 1: Cut your Fabrics
Using the pattern piece cut two heart shape pieces and a 3″ x 3″ square. Measure 1″ from the point of one of the hearts and draw a line. Cut along that line. You should now have 1 full heart, a heart with the tip cut off and a square. Fold the square into a triangle and press.
Step 2: Layer the fabrics
Place your heart right sides up on your work surface. Lay the folded triangle onto the heart piece. Then place the trimmed heart piece right sides down onto the other two pieces and pin.
Step 3: Stitch the Fabrics
Stitch the fabrics together all the way around. Clip the curves.
Step 4: Turn the Heart
Turn the piece right sides out through the heart shape that was trimmed. Poke out all of the edges and press thoroughly. You will then have to turn the heart bookmark again by turning the pocket to the other side So that the raw edges are inside the pocket. You have now finished your heart fabric bookmark.
