Time: 30 Minutes
Skill Level: Beginner
YOU WILL NEED:
- Kunin© Classic™ Felt Craft Cuts 9” by 12”– Olive Green, Gold, Copper Canyon
- Anchor Embroidery Floss Spools – 0054, 0255, 0360
- Permanent Marker – Black
- E6000 Fabri-Fuse Liquid Fabric Glue
- Embroidery Needle
- DIY CACTUS BOOKMARK PATTERN SHEET
To begin the felt bookmark, gather all supplies. Download, print and cut out the cactus pieces from the pattern sheet. Straight pin the cactus pattern onto Kunin© Classic™ Olive Felt, the flowerpot patterns onto Kunin© Classic™ Copper Canyon Felt, and the flower patterns onto Kunin© Classic™ Gold Felt.
Cut out all patterns with scissors. You can also trace the patterns onto the felt with a black marker. Just remember to cut inside the traced lines for a clean, finished project.
For added dimension, attach the flowerpot rim to the flower pot base with E6000 Fabri-Fuse liquid fabric glue. Set aside to allow glue to dry.
Thread an embroidery needle with green embroidery floss and create a running stitch pattern along the entire length of the cactus and both arms.
Thread an embroidery needle with brown embroidery floss and create a cross stitch and running stitch pattern across the width of the flowerpot.
Layer the two felt flowers on top of each other. Thread an embroidery needle with pink embroidery floss and create the flower center with a cluster of French knots.
Assemble the DIY Cactus Bookmark by attaching the cactus to the flowerpot and the flower to the cactus with E6000 Fabri-Fuse liquid fabric glue. Set aside to allow glue to dry completely.
