#193 Make Fabric Bookmarks with Leftover Fabric

This project idea came from Skip to My Lou. I thought it was a great idea as a Teacher Appreciation Gift to go along with a new book (& some homemade Cinnamon Apple Raisin Bread.) I used some leftover fabric from making my daughter's Easter dress to make these.

The first thing that I did differently was that I did not use iron-on fusing, simply because I didn't have any and didn't want to run to the store just to buy that, so I came up with a different solution and that was to use cardboard.

I glued two pieces of cardboard (from a food box, so not too thick) with the cardboard "color" inside facing out, so that the colored print side would not show through the fabric.

The rest of the instructions were the same as on Skip to My Lou. So, please check those out because she did a great job explaining each step (I totally believe in not reinventing the wheel and giving credit where it is due.)

I made the rosettes the same way I did for the headband. I think next time I might try out the tutorial on Little Birdie Secrets that Skip to My Lou referenced.
You can see the book choices my daughter made for her teacher based on some things she knows about her teachers. We went to a local bookstore and she made her choices while I chased around her little brother picking up books he pulled off the shelves.

She also made them each a card and it blew me away that she designed her card to go with the theme of the book. One card was all pictures of flowers and plants and the other one was all different kinds of transportation to take on vacation and a drawing of the Earth. Just amazed me that my (almost) 5 year old thought about doing that all on her own.

BTW - So glad I made some bread for us too because I already ate some tonight and it is fantastic! Really hope the teachers like it.

He was asked why he won't join some of the "cool" coaches who have Twitter accounts. "I'm not cool," Hoke said, smirking. "I've never tried to be cool."

Pasqualin added: "Rino has a strong sense of his Italian identity. This is the most di.Aliexpressite gusting and unjustifiable of insults." This, though, has been vehemently denied by the Spurs camp, with Redknapp quoted in the Sun as saying: "This is a case of someone playing the race card, trying to deflect from what happened.

Why anyone would come out with this, after Gattuso has apologised and called his own behaviour inexcusable, is beyond me." Redknapp has also hailed Jordan's composure for not reacting to being headbutted by Gattuso. Redknapp said: "Only a real man can take violent abuse and not react.

"In the face of unbelievable provocation at the San Siro, Joe kept his hands to himself while Gennaro Gattuso had him by the throat.

And now some people are trying to paint him as the villain of the piece, when nothing could be further from the truth."
At the final whistle of Tottenham's memorable 1-0 victory at San Siro in the Champions League on Tuesday night, Gattuso confronted Jordan on the touchline and butted t
