Who doesn’t love a hand-made bookmark? Possibilities are endless! Repeat a small motif, take a portion of a larger border or band in your favorite band sampler if you don’t have a pattern specific to bookmark finishing
Fabric - Your choice of Linen or evenweave (no Aida and no pre-finished bookmarks)

Finishing options - Fabric/felt backed or hemstitch the edge. I have a bookmark tutorial on my site, for simple fabric-backed finishing.
