I was sure I had shared this project when I did it with the girl’s class earlier this year, but I can’t find it in my archive, so, because I’m doing it again I thought I would share it this time.
It’s also fun for people with more experience because it’s larger scale fabric than most cross stitch fabric you come across.
Making a burlap bookmark is really easy and you can use yarn scraps if you happen to have them, which is always good.
What You’ll Need
- I like to use burlap ribbon for my burlap bookmarks because it’s already the perfect width (about 2 inches wide). I made mine 6 inches long but you can make yours whatever size you like
- washi tape or duct tape
- yarn or thread
- big plastic sewing needle
How to Make a Burlap Bookmark
Stitch anything you like. I went with the word read. I didn’t plan it out, which you can tell because it’s not spaced evenly.
I may throw this one in the girl’s summer basket I’m working on, because she always needs more bookmarks!
Have you ever stitched on burlap? I’d love to hear what you made.
