Felt Bookmark

Today I am going to share how to make a bookmark using Felt. This one is really easy to make. I personally adore this project since reading is like breathing to me.  I always search for cool bookmarks.  This one here is unique and neat.

1- Felt ( Brown, Purple, Green, Red )
2 - Thread and Needle
3 - Fabric Glue or Glue Gun
4 - Scissors
5 - Teacup or Mug template


Cut out the shape of a teacup or mug according to the template. 

You can draw it simply or take a printout.

Now cut two pieces of rectangle felt. The size should be equal or smaller than the cup. After cutting rectangles, make two cuts diagonally on both sides just like shown in the picture. Or you can print out a template of teabag and cut it out.

Now cut an oval from brown felt.
This is the tea. Place it on your teacup to check the size.

Checking the size and position of brown oval.

Brown felt in oval shape. 

Now the tricky part, take needle and thread. Sew one part of  teabag and tea together.  Make sure to leave a long thread in between. 

Just like this.

Now with the help of glue attach both pieces of felt.

Glue the tea on the cup.

Your teacup book mark is ready. The length of thread which I found ideal is 8 inches but if you like you can make it longer or shorter.

I add some hearts on the teabag and mug to make it look cuter. You can add your names initial too.

Do share your bookmarks with me.

Take care,

Felt Doughnut Plushy

Hi readers,
These days I am crazy about Felt and Fomic crafts. My head is brimming with new ideas and my hands are itching to try them all (Alas! A day is only of 24 hrs :\) Today I am gonna share a tutorial of making a doughnut Plushy.  You can either sew it or else use hot glue gun.

You will need:

Felt sheets
I used camel color for tge doughnut base and yellow for tge icing.  You may choose brown,pink or white color as per your choice. 
Pencil or Tailor Chalk
Threads or
Hot glue gun
Polyester for filling
Googly eyes (optional)
Key ring (optional)


Cut out two pieces of the camel coor felt. This is for the base of doughnut.  Choose the size as large as you like.

Cut out a same sized circle for icing.

Fold the circle in half and cut out a smaller circle. This is the hole of the doughnut.  Cut all three circles. Make sure their size is same.

Cut the edges of yellow felt in wavy pattern to give it the look of un even icing.

Cut out the middle circle. 

This is the assembled doughnut. Now is the time for sewing or pasting the edges. Leave less than half from one side so that you can add the polyester. 

That's how it looks like. 

Sewing it will look neat.

Add the buttons or beads as sprinklers. I stitched these you may glue them.  It's up to you.

You can add a key ring to it.

Similarly you may add googly eyes to give it a more cute look.

TaDah! Your felt doughnut Plushy is ready. Make it as a birthday present or for charity or yard sales. It's very low cost and can be made with lots of variations. Do post your comments.
