DIY: felt bookmark

bm1
Step 1: Gather your supplies: felt, scissors, thread and a needle.

bm2
Step 2: Cut out two identical hearts from the felt. Make sure the tip of the heart is a 90 degree angle so it will fit around the page corner.

Step 3: Choose your thread color and cut a piece.

Step 4: Thread your needle. I double the thread for my bookmark.

bm5
Step 5: Only make stitches on the straight edges of the heart. Start at one side of the heart and stitch around to the other side.

Step 6: Cut thread and tie knots.

Then all you have to do is place the bookmark on the corner of the page you need to mark.
