Felt Heart Bookmarks

Felt Heart Bookmarks

Hello there =)

Do you have some felt lying around?  Of course you do, we just made a bunch of hearts for our wreath last week.  How about 10 minutes?  Let’s whip up a few Valentine’s trinkets that will make sure you always hold a place in their heart… Well, their favorite book at least. And that’s close enough to love. Right?

I was inspired to make these by another post I came across, I just can’t find her right now =(  I’ll update this post when I do.  She had some great felt bookmark variations.

UPDATE: I found her! Please visit Alicia of Wake & Whimsy to see her Bookmark Pals, the inspiration for my felt heart bookmarks

Onto the bookmark making!

Gather your supplies:

Felt Heart Bookmarks - Use heart template to make felt heart | Sarah Celebrates

Choose what heart size you’d like and cut your felt heart.  I made my first one using the 2 1/2 inch template but it seemed to be a little small… Moved up to the 3 1/2 inch one.

Take an extra piece of felt and lay it on the back of the heart.  This piece needs to be large enough to make a pocket for pages to fit into.

Starting on the back of the heart, begin a running stitch to attach the felt triangle to the heart. Continue passing the needle from front to back along the edge of the triangle keeping the stitches as even as you can or care to ;)

My sewing is sub par… This was attempt 4.  Just had to roll with it.  Once you’ve tied off the end you’ll have a little pocket.

I added my heart bookmarks to one of my favorites, A Hopeless Romantic by Harriet Evans.  How fitting =)

  3. I love this really simple and cute bookmark idea. I would love to try it, even though sewing is not really my thing. You should call them Heart Felt Bookmarks, so their name would have two uses too. Get it! Have a blessed day.
