How To Make a Corner Bookmark How To Make a Corner Bookmark Presentation Transcript

  • How to:
    • x marks the spot bookmark
    • kootoyoo…click & stitch
    • Embroidery floss, scrap cardboard (a used cereal box is ideal), calico, scissors, craft knife, needle, fade out marker, adhesive backed magnetic tape
  • Step 2:
    • Prepare your templates.
    • Cut out your paper pattern from the template provided as appendix 1.
  • Step 3:
    • Use the square paper template to cut out your square from scrap cardboard.
  • Step 4:
    • Use the triangle pattern piece to cut out your triangle from scrap card.
    • TIP: If you line this up with the corner of your card you’ll only need to make one cut.
  • Step 5:
    • Now you should have three pieces of card that look like this.
  • Step 6:
    • Cut your magnetic tape to fit
  • Step 7:
    • Peel the backing tape from one of your magnets & position on your triangle.
    • TIP: if you’re using a cereal box make sure you stick the magnet to the printed side of the triangle so that the printed matter is not visible through your calico.
  • Step 8:
    • Now peel the backing tape off the top magnet.
  • Step 9:
    • Position the second triangle on top of the magnet to ensure that the magnets are lined up.
  • Step 10:
    • Your triangles should now look like this.
  • Step 11:
    • Using your square template as a guide cut out your calico. Leave a seam allowance outside the template of approximately 1.5 cm (3/4 inch).
  • Step 12:
    • Press your calico square around your cardboard template.
    • Begin by pressing the corners as pictured.
  • Step 13:
    • Next press each of the sides as pictured. This removes a lot of the bulk in the corners & will keep the folds nice & neat.
  • Step 14:
    • Remove the cardboard template & give another press.
  • Step 15:
    • Fold the square in half to form a triangle.
    • TIP: It’s a good idea to press one side just a smidge shy of the edge to keep everything neat.
  • Step 16:
    • Fold in half again & press.
    • TIP: Now is the time to make a mark with your fade out marker so that you know where to place your “x”.
  • Step 17:
    • Using the template provided match the press lines to the dotted lines & trace your “x”.
  • Step 18:
    • Stitch your “x”. Gift…use a speedy stitch like running or back stitch.
    • TIP: If this is for someone really special (yourself) you might like to “x” stitch it.
  • Step 19:
    • Once you’ve finished stitching your design place your work face down on the ironing board & repress the folds.
    • TIP: Make sure that your “x” is positioned in the top right.
  • Step 20:
    • Repress in half.
  • Step 21:
    • And then in half again.
  • Step 22:
    • Position your triangle shapes inside the seams magnet side down & fold in half.
  • Step 23:
    • Pin to secure.
  • Step 24:
    • Running stitch along each of the short sides of your triangle.
    • TIP: Position your triangle with the long side facing you. Begin your running stitch in the right had corner. If you do this you’ll be able to stitch all three seams without rethreading your needle .
    • TOP TIP: To ensure that your stitches are beautifully straight it’s a good idea to rule lines with your fadeout marker .5cm (1/4 inch) in from the seam & stitch along those .
  • Step 25:
    • Your stitched triangle should now look like this. The magnetic templates are safely enclosed inside the fabric & everything looks nice & neat.
    • Remove your pin & fold in half.
  • Step 26:
    • Now blanket stitch the short side closed to form your “cuff”.
  • Finished!
    • Finished & ready to gift.
