Luckily glancing through the books we bought in Belgium brought some solace.
I marked my favorite ‘must-do’ projects with homemade fabric bookmarkers (the idea came from pinterest).
The books are in Dutch so the text is maybe a little useless for all English-speaking people among you, but the images are very self-explanatory.
As you can see plenty of projects in the pipeline!
Some tips for making your own bookmarks: Stitch the fabric together close to the side of the paperclip. Consequently slide the fabric to the curved side of the paperclip.
Before cutting the fabric, I ironed fusible interfacing on the backside of the fabric and iron-on-vinyl on the front side.
The sides of some fabrics are really nice and it is worthwhile making some bookmarks with those parts of your fabric scraps.
