Today is the first of what I hope will be regular posts entitled ‘Make it Monday’.
These posts will appear online each Monday and they will involve a post containing a pattern either of my own design or a link to some other website for containing a fabulous make I’d love to create. I hope that these posts provide inspiration covering a variety of different media be it sewing, crochet knitting, baking….oh the list goes on and on.
Today’s ‘Make it’ is a fabric flower bookmark.
The idea came to me when I was reading a bedtime story, Rapunzel, to my daughter and we’d been using a scrap of paper to keep the place in the book. I thought wouldn’t be great if we had a bookmark that I didn’t have to worry would fall out of the book.
I had fun making the flower, indeed my cat Flynn was fascinated by me winding thread onto the sewing machine bobbin.
Yes I must remember to put the cats in another room when I sew in future, they managed to steal the original buttons I had set aside for the bookmark so those with eagle eyes will notice the buttons on the finished bookmark are different from the one I photographed for the materials required bit on the pattern.
So here’s a close up of the finished bookmark on my vintage needlework book…
…and the pattern can be downloaded here.
I have a feeling I’ll be making a few more of these, I think they’d be great as presents for book lovers.
Bye for now.
