DIY Pumpkin Bookmark



Remember when I showed you how to make heart shaped book marks?  Well, this is the same idea, but made to look like a cute little pumpkin instead.  It's so easy!

You will need:
  • 1 piece of orange felt
  • Tiny scrap of green felt
  • Scissors
  • Orange thread (or two strands of embroidery floss) and a needle
First, cut out two squares of the orange felt, about three inches squared or a little smaller.

Next, cut scallops from one corner diagonally across to the other corner on one square.  It should kind of look like a sea shell.

Use this square as a template to repeat the process on the other square.

Then, use your orange thread and a running back stitch to make a line from the point of one scallop to the tip of the pumpkin.

Repeat the process for every scallop on one of the felt pieces.  You don't need to do both pieces (yay, less work!)

Then, take a small, rectangular piece of green felt and sandwich it between the two pieces of orange felt so that it is sticking out the top.

Use a whip stitch to join the two pieces of orange felt together, making sure you add a few extra stitches to secure the green piece of felt.

And you're done!  Totally doable or what?
