Felt Teacup Bookmark
List of Supplies Needed:
- A pair of scissors
- Matching threads
- Fabric chalk or marker
Prepare the template patterns by printing and cutting them out. Select different colored felt fabrics for the bookmark. The template includes patterns for the teacup, tea, teabag and flower, leaf (design on teacup and teabag handle). Trace the patterns on the selected felt fabrics and cut them out using scissors.
Take any one of the teabag handles and place a leaf cutout on it. Take the front part of the teacup and place the flower patterns on it. Prepare needle with matching threads (leaf and flower).
Stitch the center of the flower around the border and then place the leaf cutouts under the flower around the sides.
Stitch the leaf patterns along the middle to join them with the teacup front-base. Keep the flower petals free, stitching them won’t be necessary.
Stitch the leaf on the teabag handle around the edges. Prepare a strand of yarn, long enough to cover a book. Take the other handle of the teabag and place an inch of the yarn’s open end on it.
Place the stitched handle on the top of the plain one, keeping the yarn strand between them.
Stitch both handles around the sides and make sure to secure the strand while stitching them.
Take the backside of the teacup pattern and place the cup handle on a side, but slightly overlapping the open ends of the handle with the teacup base.
Place the tea pattern near the top side of the teacup base.
Place the front-base of the teacup on the top of the other teacup base. Match the bottom ends of both cup bases. Prepare needle with matching thread.
Stitch the teacup bases together around the round edges.
Keep the top part of the teacup bases intact for now.
Take the teabag strand and insert it between the tea and teacup layers.
Stitch the tea part with the teacup base along the top side and make sure to stitch the strand with it.
