  • You need three 4″ squares and 2 squares of interfacing, of the same size. You can do contrasting colors or the same color. Totally depends on your choice.
  • Cut 1 piece of interfacing in half (you will apply this to the top piece you will see)
  • Iron the 1/2 piece to what will become your front and iron that piece into a triangle. This will be the piece you see when you open your page.
  • Attach the second piece to one of your squares that will become your back. Interfacing creates stability so your corner bookmark doesn’t fall out of your book
  • Now put your square pieces together as seen in the video below
  • Sew the squares, leaving a 1/2″ to 1″ space to turn your bookmark. Backstitch at both openings to ensure it stays in place.
  • After turning, use the bone folder to poke your corners out to make sure they are crisp. You can also use a chopstick, scissors or a butter knife.
  • Top stitch your corner fabric bookmark making sure to close up the opening you used to turn your bookmark. I like to iron first to help make it easier to top stitch and to ensure my open seam stays closed as I sew.
