Sewing Saturdays - Felt Book Mark!

Maimoonah has been begging that she needs to sew again. life had been so hectic that Sewing Saturdays was almost forgotten. Today she insisted that she needs to sew and I too wanted to get back to our normal activities and make things interesting for her.

So she made a Felt Book Mark today. Maashaa Allaah she is able to concentrate more and stitch well now. Her motor skills have improved and she needed very little help to do this.

She used the stencil and drew a lemon on the felt. I cut two pieces.

We pinned the pieces of felt with a long ribbon underneath them.

Then she stitched around the felt pieces.

She wanted to stitch a button on the middle.

Followed the same steps for the felt pieces at the end of the ribbon.

And here is the final product. She was very proud of her work! And uses it for the books she reads every day! A very simple and easy project. Originally the idea was taken from here
