The summer reading season is upon us, so pick out your favorites and keep your place in style with a Cozy Teacup Felt Bookmark. Kunin® Classic™ Felt comes is a wide variety of colors, so you can match each bookmark with each novel. With just a few supplies, free patterns, and 15 minutes, create a custom bookmark to keep or to gift!
Time: 15 Minutes
Skill Level: Beginner
YOU WILL NEED:
- Kunin® Classics™ Felt 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – Candy Pink, Copper Canyon, Sandstone, Ocean Blue
- E6000 Fabri-Fuse Liquid Fabric Glue
- Tulip Color Crafts Dimensional Fabric Paint – Slick Brown
- Straight Pins
- COZY TEACUP BOOKMARK PATTERNS
To begin the Cozy Teacup Felt Bookmark, gather all supplies. Download, print and roughly cut out the pattern sheet. Use the colors as outlined above or create a bookmark with your own style and color palette.
Attach the paper patterns to the Kunin® Classic™ Felt craft cuts with straight pins as follows: teacup and saucer on Ocean Blue, tea on Copper Canyon, heart on Candy Pink, tag on Sandstone (twice).
Carefully cut out all shapes with scissors. Sharp, pointy detail scissors work the best when cutting out smaller shapes. You can also trace the patterns onto the felt with a marker, just make sure to cut inside the traced line for a clean, finished project.
Measure and cut a 12” length of ribbon that color coordinates with your teacup. Attach one end of the ribbon to the top of the teacup and the other end to the tag with E6000 Fabri-Fuse. Glue the saucer to the bottom of the teacup.
Using Fabri-Fuse Liquid Fabric Glue, attach the remaining pieces to the teacup according to the photo. Hide the ribbon ends with the tea and second tag. Set aside and allow glue to dry.
Write the word TEA on the tag with Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint in Brown. Set aside to dry. You can also customize the tea bag tag with a monogram style initial, or cut out a fun shape from felt, then attach it with glue.
