Doesn't it look gorgeous all finished with the back stitch and for once I finished the stitching today and managed to finish the piece today as well. That has to be a record for me too actually finishing finishing something the day it is finished!
Gather all your supplies together.
You will need:
- Your finished bookmark
- Fabric Scissors
- Fabric Glue (I really like the glue pictured above)
See the picture below:
Now you can fold down the top of the bookmark and glue it down.
Before you glue the rest of the felt trim the top, of the felt, so that it sits just below the edge of the bookmark.
You can see below what it should look like.
Then glue the felt down like you did for the rest of the bookmark.
This shouldn't take you long to do. It only took me about 5 minutes to cut and glue it. The longest part was having to go to spotlight to get some more glue because mine had dried up at the worst possible time! I use this glue all the time and it seems to hold really well ... until I leave it with the lid slightly undone.
Hope this helps you to make your own bookmark in time for christmas. It could make quite a lovely gift for the book lover in your family.
I had a question about the tiki pattern. It was a kit I bought at a souvenir shop in Wellington. It's manufactured by CraftCo Limited. It's called 'Tiki' by Lyn Manning.
I hope that is enough information for you to find it.
