Felt Cat Bookmark

Since I took the word craft away from my blog strap line I have been a lot more crafty!  I have had itchy fingers recently and feel a need to keep creating.  I made this bookmark yesterday.  It is nice and sturdy with fusible interfacing sandwiched between the two layers of fabric.  I made 2 prototypes before settling on the finished item above. I think it would be a good fund raiser although some people seem reluctant to pay much for handcrafted items.  If enough people want to make it, I will add my written instructions at the end of this post.  Happy Monday!

Got a winter storm on the way. This looks like the purrfect project for when I'm snowbound. Love it and thanks for the idea.
Dovey and Mya send Gizmo their regards.
