Easy Crochet Bookmark – Free Pattern

If you still need to make a last-minute handmade gift, today I am showing you how to make my easy crochet bookmark. Ok this is not all crochet, some sewing skills are required but I think the end results are worth mixing two skills to create a crochet bookmark like no other you have seen before.

I originally saw this idea on-line in embroidery a few weeks ago. I loved the idea that I wanted to make my own twist on it with crochet. For this project you will need to have some experience using a small crochet hook and fine thread yarn – or this could be the perfect opportunity to push your crochet skills onto the next level.

You will need a few supplies including some felt fabric, thread yarn and a crochet hook plus a sewing machine if you have one to hand – although you could very easily do this by hand stitching.

These gorgeous little crochet bookmarks are so easy to make. I made a whole collection to gift to my loved ones this year.

For this pattern you choose any of my Free crochet patterns – ideally ones which are 2D as the bookmark needs to be flat. I have used a mix of my Ivy leaf, Ginkgo Leaf, Eucalyptus Stem and my Hydrangea Flower. My crochet Cherry Blossoms would work very well too.

Easy Crochet Bookmark Tutorial

Step 1: Make a crochet motif of your choosing – it must be smaller than 5cm diameter to fit onto the bookmark.

Step 2: Using the set square mark out a 12cm x 12 cm corner, next join the two remaining points to create a right-angled triangle. Make two with at least a 5cm distance.

Step 3: Cut the fabric leaving the triangle in the center – you need to leave a lot of fabric around the marking to place the fabric into the embroidery hoop.

Step 4: Place the fabric onto an embroidery hoop, sew the motif(s) onto the triangle, ensure space is left around the edges to sew the two triangles together.

Step 5: Sew along the long edge 1/2 cm from the line, repeat for the back triangle. Now cut out the triangles.

Step 6

Step 6: Pin the two triangles together with the motif on top, sew along the two unsew edges 1/2 cm from the edge.
