Here are some book marks I created by cutting an old canvas painting into strips.
What a beautiful selection of hand made book marks. It was so hard to choose. I ended up taking home the needle felted bookmark with fun circles on it!
Oreo getting in on the action.
Mmmmmmm. It was ALL good!
If you'd like to make a bookmark for your art prompt this week, here's some easy steps to create one like mine, with felted pom poms.
First, draw your picture onto a blank bookmark. Next, use iron-on fusible web from the sewing store to attach your book mark to a fabric backing. Trim out the bookmark and punch a hole in the top. You can take your bookmark to an office supply store to have it laminated like I did. This will make your book mark durable.
Now, for the pom poms! Use a small amount of roving. Wrap the roving into a loose ball.
Dip the loose ball of roving into a pan of hot soapy water. Start rolling the ball in your soapy hands. The roving will compact into a tight, hard felted ball after a few minutes.
Thread yarn through the dry ball and add to your bookmark.
Now, make more and throw a party!
