Materials Needed for felt corner bookmark:

step-by-step instructions to make a felt corner bookmark:

  1. Measure and mark 2 1/2″ squares on your felt.
  2. Cut (2) 2 1/2″ squares of felt using your fabric scissors.

3. Take (1) of your squares and draw a diagonal line across the square, mark a line, and cut the square in half, you will now have (2) triangles. (you will only use one of them).

4. Thread your needle with your embroidery floss, and tie a knot at the end.

5. If you want to stitch a design on your triangle piece, do it before your stitch the triangle and square together. Hide your knot on the back, and when you finish make sure to tie a knot to secure it.

6. Place (1) triangle on top of the square, make sure your stitch design is facing up.

7. Get a new piece of embroidery floss threaded and knotted at the end. If you need to pin or clip the pieces of the corner bookmark together you can do that now.

8. Starting at one of the triangle corners take your needle between the two pieces to hide your knot. To secure your thread make a backstitch/locking stitch to secure the thread.

9. Using the whipstitch, stitch all the way around ending on the opposite triangle corner. When you get to the end, do a backstitch/locking stitch to secure the thread.
