Handmade Bookmark.

Namaste & Hello there!

Its begin to dawn on me that a pair of jeans and heart motif are the most blessed inventions for the creative world. You can pretty much mould a scrape of denim into anything. And the heart motif….its a universal favourite and just fits anywhere.

While tidying up my DIY desk top (the literal one) I came across some left overs from a pair of jeans I recently altered and made a couple of bookmarks.

Here’s how.

Took a cardboard to draw on and pieces of denim cloth (from jeans)

Any fabric that is as stiff as denim can be easily used.

I made two cut outs from the cardboard

Following the cutout drew on the cloth

and got these

Started sewing at the bottom, joining the two pieces

Sew both pieces together till this point

So that it is open this way, to insert like a sleeve on the corner of a page

then added further stitches to complete the outline of hearts but without joining the two parts

The bookmark is ready!

I have decorated my kite with few buttons and a piece of ribbon
