Felt heart bookmarks

Isn't this the cutest thing? Probably the easiest as well! All you do is cut out two felt hearts, sew them together and you have a bookmark. They make great gifts.


Here are my felt heart bookmarks. I thought it would be fun to add some embroidery, so I added a lazy daisy and a circle of running stitch to each one.



Update:  You can now download a free pattern for these bookmarks by clicking on the image below! Also, read more details in this post.

  8. Is there a template for these? They would have to be just the right size to fit, I would think.

  10. can you just do it with needle and thread or use a sewing machine? And did you use regular thread because it looks a little thicker.
    Thanks!

  11. I sewed them by hand (thread & needle) and used 3 strands of embroidery floss.

  18. This is a great beginner sewing project for my Girl Scout Troops, they can make two or more, keeping one and giving others as gifts. I like for my Scouts to make useful crafts, if we can recycle materials that is great too. Also thinking great to make and give away at Assist living home we voluneeter at for Valentines day since alot of the residents can't eat "sweets" but they like to read. Thank you for the idea.
