Embroidered Christmas Bookmarks

For these Christmas-themed bookmarks we used the designs from the Redwork Christmas Set for a large hoop (5" x 7").

You will need

  • organza in Christmas colors - green, red, white,
  • solid cotton fabric of a pale color such as white, light green or pale pink,
  • tassels,
  • scissors with zig-zag edges.

A quilter's ruler and a rotary cutter are not necessary but very helpful.

For embroidery, you will need light-weight cut-away or tear-away stabilizer and embroidery threads.

Organza will make the bookmarks shiny and glittering.

Embroidery:

Stabilize a piece of cotton fabric with a light-weight stabilizer and cover with a piece of organza. Hoop this 3-layered piece and embroider one of the designs from the Redwork Christmas Set.
Repeat so you get 2 such stitch-outs.

Making a Bookmark:

With a ruler and a rotary cutter, cut out the embroidery, leaving 1/2" around all edges.
Repeat with the second stitch-out.


You will have 2 pieces of the same size.


Place the stitch-outs together, back to back, and pin.
Tuck the tassel's cord between the stitch-outs.

Pin it in place.

On your sewing machine, topstitch all layers together 1/2" from the edge. Topstitch over the tassel's cord 3 times to secure the tassel in place.

Separate the front and back stitch-outs near the cord and with scissors, cut away a small piece of each stitch-out over the cord.


With the "zig-zag" scissors, cut away the excess fabric around the embroidery.

Your Bookmarks are ready! Enjoy!

Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
