Handmade Stitched Bookmarks

This, I think, is a great idea for a small present for relatives, and particularly great for children to make for parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles. And best of all, they are so simple to make!

All you need to do is cut your aida to the required size, and decide on which colour threads you want to use.

Then all you need to do is stitch their name into the aida, for children you can just draw on the aida so they have a simple guideline to follow.

Tip: Its also nice to do a little border around the edge too.

When finished back onto some felt to hide any messy backs and loose threads.
