Breaking Dawn Party Peeps
Today I'm sharing something oh so convenient for my fellow Twilight readers.
First off, measure and cut the two sides of your bookmark. I went with 2.5 inch by 8 inch. A damask for one side, and the red check for the other side (I was going for the chess board look for Breaking Dawn.. ).
Then find an image of an apple to print and trace. I sketched mine out. But if you can't, just google 'apple appliques' to find one. The apple is supposed to signify the Twilight book.
After cutting out your shape, trace and cut it out the shape with some heat n bond.
Use the instructions on your heat n bond and adhere it to your apple piece.
Press it onto the bottom of your bookmark piece.
Next cut a piece of ribbon. Mine was about 10 inches long.
Start pinning the piece on to mimic the Eclipse book.
Once you reach the top, loop the ribbon around and pin in place.
Sew your ribbon and apple on.
Then get your interfacing and fuse it onto your fabric piece (this is to give it some sturdiness).
Trim off your excesses.
Then pin the end of your ribbon like so.
Now place your bookmark pieces together and pin (I used clips only because the damask fabric is vinyl.
Sew around the perimeter of your bookmark using a zigzag stitch.
And you are done!
Did anyone else read Breaking Dawn again for the movie release?
Thanks so much for joining me today!
Have a fabulous day.
