My good friend Laura gave me the idea of making a fabric bookmark. She gave me the idea, and I now make them all the time. It is a quick and easy project and perfect for scraps! Cutting, ironing, and sewing one takes about 10 minutes. What makes it special, though, is the embroidered part. I did my Grandma's initials on one and a friend's on another. They were both for their birthdays. You just may be getting one when your birthday comes around, so act surprised!
