Wondering what to do with leftover fabric scraps?  Turn them into these No Sew Fabric Bookmarks!  These are great for handmade teacher gifts or stocking stuffers for book worms. 

No Sew Fabric Bookmarks


  • Various pieces of fabric
  • Starch spray
  • Iron
  • No Sew Heat Bond
  • Iron-on embellishment


  1. Iron the fabric using a medium heat, or a heat setting according to your fabric (you don't have to worry about washing it first unless you plan to wash them in the future). 
  2. Lightly spray it with regular starch to help stiffen the fabric up a bit (follow starching directions on the can), do this on both sides. 
  3. Fold the edges in on all sides and iron them flat, fold in half and iron a crease, unfold.

  4. Cut a piece of No Sew Heat Bond to half the size of the fabric and place it paper side up, iron for 2 seconds at medium dry heat (no steam).

I think these book marks are really creative and you can do so many different ones because of the multitude of different patterns and types of fabric. You can do sets or create gift baskets and matching book marks.

Great idea for classmate gifts at Christmas. Thrifty and encourages reading ! Thanks for sharing ,

Fantastic idea! adding embellishment charms and tassles to one end. Giving as a birthday gift for a college friend......Thanks for the simple yet versatile and inexpensive idea.

Love this idea, something I can do with my granddaughter when she starts reading "big girl books" and the crafts bazaar my church has at Christmas time as a fund raiser. Great idea, very thrifty, green, costs nothing to make. Thanks for sharing!

Very nice and simple. Thanks for sharing.
