hello and welcome, due to down computer and being super busy, my blogging skills have fallen. even though this post is late, it is better late then never! sadly, i missed smeared and smudged skull apperation day due to my computer. i will be showing that post one day soon, but for today, i have a super easy bookmark! if you have left overs of a favoriate fabric this is the perfect project for it! decied on how long you would like your bookmark to be, if you would like a 9in one, then cut your fabric about 3in wide by 18 1/2in. if you would like to add an embellishment, like a yo-yo with a button in the middle, do so now! place it about 3/4in of an inch down from the top of your bookmark.
then fold right sides together and sew the sides leaving about 1/4in from the top and sew with a 1/4in seam allonance. when you have a yo-yo with a button, it is a little wonky sewing around it, but if i can do it, then you can too!
now, turn it out and fold the ends in a tad bit, and sew the top closed! super easy! (as i am posting this my computer froze up and had to be shut down, here i thought i fixed the darn thing, i guess a new computer is in my future) enjoy! lisa
