Today we are thrilled to be a part of Skip To My Lou's Teacher Appreciation roundup! What a fabulous group to be a part of (and what a fabulous blog to be featured on!). Be sure to hop on over to Skip To My Lou for tons of great teacher appreciation ideas from top craft bloggers! Here's what we're sharing there today. . .
Spring is trying to spring here in the Pacific Northwest, but it's not very successful. But I'm going to bring a little spring to my son's teacher during Teacher Appreciation Week in the form of a flower fabric bookmark. They're so super easy to make, and they're a great fabric stash buster!
Fabric Bookmark Tutorial for Teacher Appreciation Week
*Fabric cut to 4" x 8"
*Fusible interfacing cut to 3.75" x 7.75"
*Fabric strip for flower cut to about 1.25" x 42"
*Coordinating thread and sewing machine
*Needle and thread
1. Following manufacturer's instructions, iron fusible interfacing to wrong side of fabric piece.
2. Fold fabric piece in half width-wise, right sides together.
3. Sew across bottom edge and up side edge.
4. Clip corners and turn inside out. Use a pencil to gently push out corners.
5. Fold ends of open end in about 1/2".
6. Top stitch around all four sides, close to the edge, closing up open end.
7. Create a fabric rosette with your long strip of coordinating fabric and fabric glue (see tutorial here). Hand sew a button in the middle.
8. Glue the fabric flower to the top of the bookmark with fabric glue. That's it!
Thank you to all the teachers out there who put so much of their time and themselves into nurturing our children!
