Fabric Bookmarks

I made these bookmarks using scraps leftover from other projects. They were published in the recent Create: Vintage magazine.

The white fabric is the hem from an old tablecloth that I used for a couple of upholstery projects. Then I added old lace/crochet trim, scraps of paper coated in Ice Resin, some fancy stitching, and vintage flowers. I added an eyelet to the top of each and added ribbon or fibers to finish them off.

I was shopping at JoAnn’s on Saturday, and found a few packages of the ribbon clamps on sale, so I bought what they had. Now I can make more! My MIL has a birthday this week, so I made a beaded cross for her and turned it into a bookmark.
