Read all instructions before beginning this project.

For this project you will need:
Choose a pattern for your design that will be suitable for a bookmark. Determine the finished design size of the pattern.

To determine the size you should cut your fabric, determine exactly how wide your finished bookmark will be, then cut the fabric at least twice as large. For example, if the finished bookmark will be 1 1/2 inches wide, cut the fabric 3 inches wide by the length of the design.

The bookmark in this tutorial is six inches long, but choose any length suitable for your design.

Cut the fabric to the proper size, then center and stitch the design.
