What’s the Project? Want to make your own bookmark in about 5 minutes? This cute bookmark is one of the easiest sewing patterns you will find and perfect for a beginning sewer to try. This only takes a scrap of fabric and is a fun project for kids and teens!
I’ve said it before and I will say it again! I LOVE summertime!
And one of the best parts of summer for me is reading. (And if you love reading too, be sure to check out these fun book recommendations!)
So…to fit with that theme, I’ve got a VERY quick and easy sewing project for you. It’s a bookmark that won’t fall out. It should take an experienced sewer about 5 minutes to make. Even a beginner can pull this baby off. I promise! And it’s fun to make your own bookmark!
It wraps around the book so that even if your kiddos pick your book up or if fall off your night stand, you won’t lose your page! (I need to make more of these!)
And, to make it ever more fun, I made mine reversible. So I can have a different bookmark depending on my mood.
Want to make your own bookmark too? I know you can do it!
Easy-to-Sew Bookmark Pattern
- Scraps of fabric
- Small piece of elastic (mine was 1/2 inch wide but really, most any width will do)
- Cut out 2 pieces of fabric that are about 3 inches wide by 12 inches wide. (Really you can vary this if you want-depending on how big or small you want your bookmark.)
- Cut your elastic about 8 inches long.
- Sew your fabric with right sides together. Sew up the two long sides.
- Turn it right side out and press it flat.
- Insert your elastic at the end and sew it in place.
- Do the same on the other end. And you’re done!
