Bookmark attempt number 2 – fabric

Bookmark attempt number 2 – fabric

Hi everyone. Ok, my first attempt that I shared with you sorta didn’t turn out as I had hoped. I will try it again but this time I will not go Mod Podge crazy. I had too much and didn’t allow enough drying time in between the two sides… my bookmark stuck to my craft tray in a couple of places and tore the paper.

So I decided to try out another tutorial I had found using my sewing machine.  Tutorial found here.  You do have to use Mod Podge.  I did use a light coat and allowed to dry completely.  My measurements are a little different.  I was using a piece of scrap material I had and I apparently can not cut a straight line when using a rotary blade… go figure.  So mine is a bit smaller and I didn’t play around with personalizing.  I did try one attempt,  not the look I was going for,  haha.  I am able to use fonts and a few fancy stitching options with my machine but I really haven’t played with the settings to get the right tension and such to make it look right.  I will make a few more after I play around with those features.

I also used my Crop-a-dile to place an eyelet in for my ribbon instead of sewing the ribbon in.  So here is a look at bookmark number 2:
