Our Favorite Supplies for Bookmarks

Here's a list of the materials and tools we use to make the Easter Egg Place Mats.

Fabrics: We used Essex Linen by Robert Kaufman Fabric and the Starry collection by Alexia Abegg for Ruby Star Society in this bookmark.

50 wt. Aurifil Thread: This 100%-cotton thread is low-lint and comes in a variety of colors. We suggest getting a neutral color (such as white or cream) that will blend with a variety of colors, so you don't need to switch thread between projects.

Wonder Clips: This pin alternative holds bulky layers in place and is easy to remove when sewing. You can also use these clips to hold binding in place while sewing!

Here's a tutorial for our favorite method and tools for embroidery!
