Welcome to our last day of Hip Hip Hooray for Holidays.
I have loved working on these projects each day with my girls - its certainly created lots of discussion in our home and I hope it has in yours too.
I am preparing a post of things to share from some of my lovely readers who have sent me photos so please do send anything you have created from our posts.
Project - Fabric Book Marks
These are so cute and fun to make - the girls whipped them up in no time and it reminded me how I really need to get them using the machine more often. They love searching through my fabrics to decide which colours to use.
- Scrap fabrics
- Sewing machine
Choose two matching fabrics and a coordinating felt
Cut your fabrics into rectangles - you need two of each - size doesn't matter so much ours were 4 inches x 3 inches which allowed for a decent seam - with little people stitching you sometimes need that.
Stitch your four pieces together and then iron flat
Cut a pice of felt to match your finished piece
Pin a tab of ribbon to the top of your 4 pieces
Stitch around the long side and one end
Trim your corners and turn through
Turn the open end under and top stitch the edge
and here are a few more we made too
Yummy soft bookmarks to put in some of our favourite books.
On our bedside tables right now are
Me - Short Girls
I do have another project to share with you but that will be over the next day or so. Don't forget today is your last chance to take advantage of QFD's special offer for our Hip Hip Hooray Readers.
Make sure you pop over to Mel's blog to see her final project too.
Tomorrow we will be telling you about our next Hip Hip Hooray series, which is coming very soon :)
I'll also be loading some auctions for the Flood Appeal on Saturday - so please pop back - They will be filled with lovely scrapping goodies.
