fabric corner bookmark

Here's a tutorial for an easy fabric corner bookmark for all of you avid readers out there. (They'd also make a nice little present)

But first, thanks for the kind emails regarding my dog. She is back home with us now and recovering. The ultrasound showed no signs of pancreatitis (which is what they were worried about) so it could be just a little tummy infection or the beginning stages of pancreatitis (hopefully the former). In any case, she's on anti-nausea meds and some painkillers.

Sweet girl. 


Cut out two triangles. I used a canvass fabric for extra thickness and durability. The two shorter ends of my triangle were about two inches long. Note this is not an equilateral triangle. 

With right side together, sew the two short sides.

Turn the whole thing right side out. 

Cut away any extra fabric. 

Hold your place by placing the bookmark around a chunk of pages. 

I realize this bookmark kind of resembles those pee-pee teepees someone bought for my boys when they were infants.....I suppose this could be a pee-pee teepee tutorial as well??

Happy Reading!


  1. Fantastic idea - and so nice that it's multi-purpose! Not only am I an avid reader, but I'm expecting my first baby soon (a little boy), so these should come in handy either way. :-) Thanks for sharing!

  2. Lovely idea for a simple but cute little bookmark!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
    Hope you have a fabulous week!

  3. What a great idea! I'm going to share it with my English classes (maybe not the pee pee part :0))

    Thanks so much for sharing at Pin'Inspiration Thursday, hope to see you pop by on Saturday to "Beat the Winter Blues". Have a fantastic end of the week.

  4. I have made these using my embroidery machine. I like the idea of making them without the ME. Would love to have you come link-up at Finished it Friday! Have a fabulous weekend!

  5. So glad to hear your pooch is back home. Let us know if you need any online dog support and we will have one of our pooches send a pep talk email. Thanks so much for linking this up at Doggone Dirty Craftin last week. Can't wait to see what you have for this thursday!
