Kids Sewing Projects: Heart Bookmarks
Here is an easy hand-sewing project I designed, and I thought it would be worth sharing with all of you. It’s a simple little bookmark made with felt and a paper clip. I thought this could be a fun sewing project for kids because they could easily make them for all of their friends. Or you could also use these heart bookmarks to attach to birthday cards or gifts for a little added fun! And just how cute would these be on Valentine cards?! I only designed a simple flower for the center, but maybe you could even create some a little more fancy! I hope you like this idea and have fun sewing them to your heart’s content!
- Large paper clips
- Embroidery floss
- Small beads (optional)
- Heart template
Print and cut out the heart template, and then trace and cut out your pieces of felt. Cut two hearts for each bookmark you want to make.
Sew the paper clip onto the back of one of the hearts. See photo A.
Now turn the heart over. Don’t worry about the stitches showing on the front, because they will be hidden under the flower and leaves. Sew the leaves on using the backstitch. Be sure to stitch down the very center of each leaf. See photo B.
Sew the flower on using a French knot in the center. Or you could sew it on using a small bead instead. See photo C.
Next, sew the front heart to the back heart using the running stitch. To sew along the bottom, just lift up the edges of the leaves and sew underneath. See photo D.
