So my MIL is an avid reader, her birthday is coming up in a week and we got her a book we think she may enjoy reading. Last week, I started thinking up of an easy way to make a bookmark for her, I am not a sewer, lol, so it had to be something easy. Well, here is what I came up with today.
Making them was very easy and fast. I used some scraps form my sunflower quilt and made a 6.5" string block. I added a fusible to the wrong side of the block and then cut two 2" strips. Used an old desk calendar( any card stock would work) and fused a strip to both sides and then used a tight zigzag to stitch all the way around it. Easy peazy, especially if you have some orphan blocks laying around. I think putting this bookmark inside the book would add that personal ouch to the gift, and of course every book needs a bookmark
