Fabric Bookmark Tutorial - Perfect gifts for the readers in your life! {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

First gather your supplies:

Fabric Bookmark Tutorial - Perfect gifts for the readers in your life! {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

Two coordinating fat quarters of fabric

thread

medium or heavy weight pellon stabilizer

pinking shears

1. First cut one from each of your coordinating fabric: I cut mine at 8″ x 3″ (but you can do whatever size you want.)

Then cut your stabilizer: you want it about a 1/4 inch smaller than your fabric.

Ribbon: about 4 inches

Stabilizer

Ribbon (folded in half while sticking out)

The other coordinating fabric face up

3. Pin and sew your pieces together around the perimeter – sew with about 1/2 inch seam allowance. If you like, sew an inch in to add a quilted look.
