Easy Bookmark Sewing Tutorial:

Supplies Needed:

  • Scraps of fabric
  • Small piece of elastic / garter (mine was 1/2 inch wide but really, most any width will do)


Cut out 2 pieces of fabric that are about 3 inches wide by 12 inches wide.

Cut your elastic / garter about 8 inches long.

Sew your fabric with right sides together. Sew up the two long sides:


Turn it right side out and press it flat:


Fold the ends in and press that as well:


Insert your elastic at the end and sew it in place.


Do the same on the other end.
