Easy Fabric Bookmark

easy fabric bookmark without words

Do you need a fast and simple gift?  Well, these easy fabric bookmarks are a little handmade touch to go with a store-bought book as a gift and are so cute sticking out of the side.  And I love them because they won’t damage a book!

  They are perfect sewing project for any age and are also a perfect scrap buster for tiny pieces of fabric that you have left-over from other projects.  Hannie helped me with this one and the only part I did was the top-stitching (mostly because she had a friend come to the door to play).

Here’s how I made mine:

*3 pieces of quilting cotton  (4 inches by 4 inches)

* 1 piece of batting (4 inches by 4 inches)
