This felt corner bookmarks craft just needs a few basic craft supplies and is a great way to introduce sewing to kids!
Hi there, Kenarry readers! It’s Kelly from Typically Simple and I’m so excited to be back this month with a fun craft project you can make with the kids. Now I usually share yummy recipes with you all, like these Monster Cookie Bars, but this time I decided to share a craft project! As a former teacher, I always love creating handmade gifts that the kids can make, and these felt corner bookmarks are just that!
I always love seeing the bright colors of felt at the craft store and since it’s pretty inexpensive, I always pick up a few pieces even though I have no projects planned for it. So after seeing how large my pile was starting to become, I decided it would be fun to make some colorful corner bookmarks to start using it up!
These felt corner bookmarks are the perfect project for teaching kiddos how to sew with a needle and thread. Plus they will love giving it as a gift to family members and friends…or even just keeping it for themselves to use with a favorite book!

- sheets of felt in a variety of colors
- embroidery thread
- large sewing needle
Cut two shapes of the same size from the felt. Use a book corner as a template for size if needed.
Using a long piece of embroidery thread, start at the upper corner of the shape and sew the two pieces together going down along the side. Then sew back up the other side to create a corner pocket. Tie a knot to secure.
Embellish with buttons, embroidery stitches, glitter, or anything else to make it a fun little bookmark!
These felt bookmarks would be so cute as a gift wrapped up with a book or gift card to a favorite bookstore!
