In this blog we will show you how to make your very own Fabric Corner Bookmarks. They are super simple so, perfect for kids to make as gifts for teachers and family.
Begin with 3 squares of coordinating fabric and 2 squares of Heat n′Bond Lite, 1″ smaller than your fabric. We made two sizes, one using 5″ squares and the other using 4″ squares. Moda charm squares are perfect for this project as they are pre-cut to 5″. We loved using Balbao with its beautiful flowers and vibrant colours for great contrast. https://www.quiltdirect.co.uk/acatalog/Balboa.html
Take the fabric that you would like the corner triangle to be made from and iron Heat n′Bond Lite onto the reverse side. Once it has cooled remove the paper backing, fold in half diagonally and press again.
Sandwich the triangle between the other two layers with both right sides facing in.
Pin together (we used Clover Wonder Clips) and using a 1/4″ seam allowance, stitch around the sandwich leaving a small opening for turning (see the second picture below, the opening is marked with Wonder Clips).
Turn the correct way (we love the Purple Thang for jobs like this). Fold in the open seam and topstitch the edges. Bernina lovers, don’t forget your foot 10 for perfect topstitching and the height compensation tool helps you to stitch smoothly over the lumps.
