From the Blogger: "Here is a great quick project that you can make in an hour and show off your embroidery skills, and your receiver will appreciate getting a gift made just for them. Think Mother's Day gift or a nice surprise in an Easter basket for someone who loves to read. All you need for completing this book mark is fabric, interfacing or fleece, hoop, needle, and pinking shears. The whole project is sewn by hand, so no worries about getting the sewing machine out and prepped."

. Once you master this little bookmark you can expand and make something a little bigger and then bigger still. The possibilities are endless

These embroidery bookmarks are so adorable. There can never be too many bookmarks. I attend a Bible Study group and there are just a few of us that come. These will be a thoughtful gift to give.

I can't wait to make these for my friends and family who are avid readers. You can never have too many bookmarks and this little embroidery will be quick to do for a bunch of people.

I wanted to do a little something for the women in my book club for Christmas and this is the perfect gift. Or great teacher gift ,Mothers Day or Father's day for those readers or even you. Super easy project and you can start doing the embroidery now and make some extras for last minute gifts. Super tutorial and great way to use up those scraps.

Oooooh I love new embroidery projects! I'm not sure if putting fabric between pages would be too thick? I would have to pick a very particular type of fabric
