Measure your pillowcase and cut squares to fit.
Mine is 40" around on each case.

Sew into 2 rows of 20 each - Sew the ends of each row together to form a circle

How to make a Simple Book Corner Bookmark

Pin It
 Happy Christmas in July with The Quilt Ladies

Corner Book Mark
I love giving books and this bookmark makes it personal. Years ago the pre-school I worked at made these out of paper, mine are the same idea, just with fabric.

1 Heavy piece of paper, index card works well
2 Pieces of fabric 4 ½” x 4 ½”
With white glue, glue each piece of fabric to each side of the heavy card.  Let dry.

On the light color fabric, draw out a 4 Patch block, each block measuring 2” x 2”

The past few months getting The Quilt Ladies Books on Kindle has been crazy. I've learned so much and after this I now know that there is NOTHING I can't do. It's funny the harder things are, makes you enjoy the finished product that much more. I celebrated with a trip to a local flea market and I'm doing a wonderful desk for my office. I'll share soon.
