Magical felt bookmark in use

You will need:

  • Felt from your pack
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

Cutting frill into felt bookmark

Imagine that you’re creating a spell stitch and think about what it would look like. Sketch out the basics of your design on the felt with pencil.

Sketching design into bookmark

It’s time to make the design permanent. We chose to use coloured pens to create our intricate stitch pattern. If you’re good at sewing you might like to have a go at creating your stitch with a needle and thread.

Adding the stitches

For a bit of extra magic, you might like to use glue to stick some gems or sequins onto key areas of your design.
