White Embroider Thread (or colour of choice)
I actually used the left over felt
from my valentine heart hand warmers
Take 2 pieces of felt
that have a corner and two sides
(this will be the corner of your bookmark)
(they don't have to be large)
fold them in half
So the 2 edges are together.
Now taking your scissors cut the top shape of a heart
When you unfold the felt
you should have a heart shape
with the corner being the bottom of the heart
Take the embroidery thread and split it in half
Knot a couple of times at one end
and then thread the other on your needle
Now put the thread from back to front
on the top heart
It should stop where the knot is on the thread.
Now take the thread from the back of the
bottom heart and through the top heart
in the same place as the starting stitch.
Now using a blanket stitch sew around the two sides of your heart.
Check out the instructions here
Knot your end around the finishing stitch.
Your bookmark is now complete
You can make them in different sizes and colours
