Make handmade fabric bookmarks without sewing with Aida bands and felt!

Materials

  • Outer fabric: Your finished bookmark (Aida band)
  • Backing fabric: Felt
  • Iron-on fabric tape

01. Trim and iron the bookmark

When you’ve completed your design, trim both ends of the Aida band, leaving at least 1"(2,5cm) of extra fabric. 

Gently iron the bookmark on the wrong side.

04. Attach two pieces of fabric

Carefully position your felt onto the bookmark and iron following the manufacturer's instructions.

TIP:

If the felt is made of polyester, it will melt, so be careful when setting the iron. Turn your iron to the Poly setting with steam and move quickly across the felt. It is better to place a  thin  towel or handkerchief on top of the felt and iron it.



05. Done!
