This elastic bookmark is a super easy beginning sewing project.
You will need:
A sewing machine and all parts needed for machine (thread, needle, etc.)
1/2 yard of fabric
1 yard of 1/8 width elastic
Step 1: Step 1: Buy Fabric and Elastic
Go to the fabric store and buy about a half of yard of fabric in order to create the bookmark. This gives you room to mess up and practice without having to go buy more fabric. You also need to get a yard of 1/8 inch elastic.
Step 2: Step 2: Cut Fabric
Cut two fabric pieces out with the measurements of 3 by 12 inches wide. Then, cut a piece of elastic to be around 8 inches long.
Step 3: Step 3: Sew Fabric- Using a Sewing Machine
Place the two cut out pieces of fabric right sides together. Sew the long edge sides. Unfold the fabric to be right side out. Then, place the elastic to one of the short edge sides and sew it in place, and do the same thing to the other side. Your elastic bookmark is now complete :)
