Karen at Sew Many Ways has a a great tutorial for a heart bookmark that is perfect for Valentine’s Day.
These literally take minutes to cut and sew. The only change I made was to trim the seams and do some decorative top-stitching. I made these to enclose with my Valentines to the family this year.
Red fabric is good for Valentine’s Day but I couldn’t resist making one in an animal print for a daughter who loves it.
The back has a little pocket which slips over the bottom corner of a book page to keep your place.
To accompany the bookmark and to help explain how to use it, I looked through my collection of vintage cards for something with a book and came up with this one.
I scanned it and added the caption, “A Valentine Bookmark just for you”. The bookmark was slipped onto the bottom edge…
….and I wrote a personal message on the back of the card.
