Flower/Heart Valentine’s Bookmark Tutorial

The best thing about these bookmarks is that they are not only perfect for Valentine’s Day, they are also great for anytime of the year. Here is a great tutorial for learning the basics of machine embroidery. Please make as many bookmarks as you want for personal use, but please don’t sell any bookmarks that were made using this pattern. Download Pattern (pdf) Materials: 2 pieces of fabric for the top and bottom of the bookmark 8 1/4" x 2 3/4" 1 piece of fabric for flower 3 3/4" x 2 3/4" 1 piece of fabric for leaf 5" x 2 3/4" (if making a heart bookmark, just cut one piece of your heart fabric the same size as the two muslin pieces) Gather your fabric pieces and iron if necessary. Trace your pattern onto your bookmark top piece (sorry it’s so hard to see, the bright sun was washing it out). Probably the easiest way to do this is to cut out the pieces on the pattern and then trace the inside straight onto the fabric. Carefully cut out the flower head and leaf (or hearts). I carefully clipped the center of the flower and cut around the edge with very sharp scissors. Using a 1/4" seam, stitch the two short ends of the flower and leaf fabrics together (if making a heart bookmark, skip this step as you will just be using the one patterned piece of fabric for all three hearts) Press the seam open. Lay your flower/leaf fabric right side up. Lay your cut out muslin piece on top. Drop your feed dogs, and carefully stitch around the leaf and the flower (or hearts). Don’t worry about it being perfect, it’s the wobbles that give it extra charm. Stitch three lines from the base of the flower to whatever length you desire. Lay your flower or heart piece right side up and place your bottom muslin piece on top. Raise your feed dogs back up, and starting near the middle of one of the long sides, sew a 1/4" seam all the way around, making sure to leave a 2" gap in order to turn it right side out. Clip the corners, making sure not to clip the stitches. Turn the bookmark right side out, fold the unstitched parts under, and press. Topstitch around the book mark and enjoy!

    Beim gemütlichen Lesen von dem Posting “%BLOGTITLE”, dann spüre ich

    Das lobe ich mir. Denn man liest viel zu viele halbgare Texte in den unterschiedlichen Blogs.

    Zukunft noch saubere Texte wie jenen hier hinbekommen kannst.
