Fabric Book Mark Instructions

Okay here is my latest quick and easy endevor. Fabric book marks.

I cut a scrap peice of fabric 4 1/2 x 6/1/2 inches. Folded it in half length wise right sides together. Sew across the bottom and up the side. Turn it inside out. Use a pen or chop sticks to press out the corners. Cut a piece of heavy card stock or a manila folder into a 1 7/8 inch piece. The length will need to able be at least 6 inches. Insert the paper into the bookmark. Cut off the excess paper. Turn the raw edge into the book mark and sew it closed. I used a heavy duty needle and some embroidery thread to add tassels to the end of some of them. You could also quilt them with a machine and a heavy duty needle.
