It is nearly the end of term, so the inevitable head scratching begins over teacher gifts.

Ellen and Thom both had two teachers this year, plus a student teacher in Thom’s class, so I wanted something affordable and easy to make as there are so many to do! I’d seen lots of fabric bookmarks on various blogs and thought it was a lovely idea.

The fabric was from a stack of 5” squares I bought from Frumble. I hadn’t got round to using them. Pairing them up for these bookmarks worked really well.

I didn’t really need a tutorial for this but it was a good starting point. I actaully used 4 layers of interfacing to get them stiff enough. The tags at the bottom are from our local Scrap Store and are misprinted name tapes – quite apt for teacher gifts I thought!
