Make a Scrap Fabric Bookmark from Teeny Tiny Trimmings

Don’t throw those teeny tiny scraps away! There are actually lots of things you can do with them, this post is about just one way – turn them into a Scrap Fabric Bookmark!

Materials Needed – Scrap Fabric Bookmarks

– Trimmings and slivers of scrap fabric including thread & zipper trimmings if desired. – Embroidery Stabiliser – Offcuts of ribbon – Sewing machine and thread – Cutting Mat and Rotary Cutter


It was basically one bag that I had filled with slivers, trimmings, and balls of thread from other sewing and craft projects.

Sort Your Scraps


After that, what you need to do is cut some embroidery stabiliser to roughly the size you want your bookmarks to be.

Next, you get to fill your little bookmark envelope with all your lovely scraps.

Fill your Scrap Fabric Bookmark


First, you want to sew up the open seams to make sure all your scraps are safely inside your envelope. If you did the sew & stuff method above then you just need to close that last seam.

Sew like Crazy!

If you did my current favourite method of laying out and pinning then you’ll need to sew all the way around your bookmark to seal it up and remove your pins.
