Personalized Fabric Bookmarks

These Personalized Fabric Bookmarks would make great gifts for anyone.  No need to wonder how to make handmade bookmarks anymore...this tutorial from Heather Valentine is easy to follow and results in a really cute fabric craft!

Personalized Fabric Bookmarks



  • Fabric scraps
  • Mod Podge
  • Felt
  • Ribbon


  1. Cut 1 piece of fabric and 1 felt 6 1/2″ long x 2 1/4″ wide. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to your pressed fabric to ”stiffen” the fabric and give it more texture. Reserve felt for step 4.
  2. To personalize my bookmark, I created a small patch by layering felt and fabric. Then added a few decorative stitches found standard on “Ellie”. Feel free to do this by hand. Get creative- maybe one large initial, a heart, xoxo… anything works! And if you don’t want to sew this part, print off something from clip art and Mod Podge it to the face of book mark.
  3. Position and stitch your patch to the face of your bookmark. I used straight stitch but feel free to use those fun stitches on your machine!
  4. Then layer the felt behind your front and sandwich your ribbon along the top center. Join all layers together with a simple stitch. Be sure to back-stitch over the ribbon for extra strength.
