Last Minute Gift »
InstructionsI used Heather Hales' brilliant idea for a quick-to-make, one of a kind accessory for a book gift, changing only the style of embroidery (simple running stitch in place of her much more advanced snowflakes and baby chicks) and edging (blanket stitch instead of cut scallops.)
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Whimsical, Retro / Vintage, Cute
Felted wool sweater scraps Embroidery floss Sewer's elastic Rotary cutting tool
What was your inspiration?
Heather Hales' cute designs on the bookmarks she shared on her blog!
What are you most proud of?
Actually finishing the pair, just hours before delivering them with bookstore gift certificates to a local school's silent auction.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Hunt up some bright colour elastic - the bookmarks would be even cuter!
