You might be thinking... this looks really easy, who needs a pattern? Well, I wish I had a nickel for every student who has asked "How do I make a book mark?". They might have just finished a really challenging daredevil level project with classroom time to spare, but have no clue even where to start on a book mark!
I'd say the Bookmark pattern is used almost daily in our classroom. It's so quick and fun to make, the students dig through the scrap bin and make them for their teachers, friends and family. We've had some make enough for their whole class for Valentine's Day. One takes about 1/2 hour or less to make. I've never seen two alike and the decorating can take longer than the actual construction, should you choose to embellish.
All our patterns are rated Easy, Pro and Daredevil. This pattern is rated "Easy" level because there is simple straight seams to sew and only has one pattern piece.
This pattern contains 4 pages and is in pdf format. It has meticuous step-by-step instructions, the pattern piece and large colored photos containing directional arrows. It is written in sewing lingo anyone young or old can understand.

One challenge I face is finding patterns written in lingo kids can follow. So, I developed Little Stitchers' Pattern Co. to solve our problem. When I'm not teaching, I'm designing and writing patterns we can use in class. They are loaded with color photographs, detailed step-by-step instructions and pattern pieces. Each pattern is kid-tested and stamp approved.
Thanks for continuing to read this & hope you enjoy our patterns!
