Canvas Bookmarks {Complete Tutorial}

Can you believe I am actually trying to create amongst the mess? LOL! And when I say mess, it is a true, true mess in my room. I can't even sit to create (which I always do). But the show must go on, so I have made an attempt at a tutorial this week for Memory Box! I thought I would share it with y'all too.

Last year I came up with a fun way to make canvas bookmarks. I love them, and they hold up SO well plus they make great gifts. You can make 8-10 bookmarks at a time! I have just written 2 posts sharing my complete tutorial on my Memory Box blog. You can see those posts here:

Hi Patter!

These are beautiful! I received my MIL's old sewing machine. I just need someone to teach me how to use it! I haven't the clue.

I love the colors and durability of your bookmarks. Great job!
