Harry Potter Bookmark

Need to make a gift for someone?
Does that someone love books?

Well that was the situation I was in for my Dad...
And I decided to make him a Harry Potter bookmark out of felt!

I started with a rectangle piece of flesh-tone felt.
I then cut out hair, glasses, eyes, a nose, and a mouth out of black.
Out of red I cut a lightening bolt scar and to rectangles for the scarf.
Out of yellow I cut a large rectangle for the scarf.
I hand stitched everything down with coordinating embroidery floss.
I then finished it off by stitching on another rectangle piece of flesh-tone felt on the back to cover up all of the other stitches and knots.

Now you have a gift perfect for book lovers!
Tailor it to fit their likes!
