I made some bookmarks last week for an activity with our young women.  They were super easy and ended up being a great way to use up some scraps, so I though I would share some of the details.  First I cut 2 coordinating fabrics and a piece of heavyweight interfacing to 7.5 x 2.  Then I placed my fabrics wrong side together with the interfacing in the middle. I cut a 2 inch piece of ribbon and slid it in one end.  After that it was as easy as stitching around the edges and clipping with my pinking shears to minimize fraying.  Like I mentioned it is a great way to use scraps, but if you are making more than a couple, I would recommend getting a couple of fat quarters to make cutting a breeze.  I hope you are getting some spring sunshine this weekend!
