Keepers #15 (2013-2014)

There is nothing like a simple sewing project to lighten the day. After several weeks of more difficult sewing projects, we decided to slow things down a little. Our project of the week: bookmarks!

These bookmarks are super easy and quite fun! We found the idea on Pinterest and quickly decided this was a must for the girls. All you need is a length of ribbon, a button, and a small band of elastic (we used a rainbow loom piece).

Based on previous projects, I expected the girls to take more time with these. Surprisingly, they finished more quickly than anticipated. Their sewing skills are starting to increase! (Of course, there was a little less sewing involved as well.)

Everyone seemed to enjoy these projects and I hope they will find them useful. I know our girls can never have enough bookmarks; we are just a bookworm family!

Have you ever made your own bookmarks?

  1. Yes! I’ve crocheted them. And I’ve made them of paper on my computer. And I’ve grabbed any old piece of junk mail and used it for a bookmark. Ha.
    This looks so super-cute! Great job, everyone! 🙂

  2. Yes, homemade bookmarks, with lace and ribbons. The satin ribbon so that it won’t mark your book, and the lace to keep it from sliding out. Plus – charms attached to the ends! 🙂
