a few bookmarks for summer reading

Summer is here, no more school,
no more homework...
Oh wait, scratch that, there is still summer reading....
Well it is more pleasure than homework!

To help everybody feels more engaged in their reading,
I made some cute fabric bookmarks,
mixing fabric, ribbon and stamping,
even faster than machine embroidery!




For Miss C., I made her two versions:


with stamped horses and charms,


it totally helps with the reading!
She finally decided to read Harry Potter, 
and already more than halfway through the second one....

For Brick Master, I revisited the robotic collection that I used for 
his rock climbing bag, but instead of blue,
I used the orange/black version.



just layers of fabric, no stamping or charms,
he does not need these things, of course!




And I also made one for myself in linen, my favorite!


I stamped the background and the old stamp,
and used a Hawaiian label from some Tim Holtz fabric,
the same one I used some my wet bags,
here and here.


Of course, now I dream of reading on the beach.....

Happy sewing!
