Gift Idea For The Reader

Do you have a reader in your life? I have one. Man does he love these...


Do you need a simple and easy, yet perfect gift for the little readers in your life?

Make them some felt book marks.


Start with a 2 1/2" by 9" felt piece and let your imagination run. I sketched out ideas of what I wanted to do and then I went through my felt scraps. I cut out all different shapes. I sewed those shapes on, and then sewed the book mark to another piece of felt for stability and to hide the back.

Now my little reader has a perfect way to mark his place.


I even made a girly one for me...



These would go perfect with a few of your little (or big) reader's favorite books.

Hey Larissa, I love these adorable little bookmarks! How cute!

We're not from Columbus, but I did live there for a while. I live about an hour from there now. I couldn't take the big city for too many years! I'm a country girl at heart! :) Great to "meet" a fellow Buckeye, though! O-H!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I linked up several ideas to your Christmas in July Party! So much fun!

Enjoy this nice (hot) weather!!!

Amanda
