I love marking specific passages in all my books, and these page markers are a lovely way to do it. Not only do they save a specific page, but they also point to a specific passage or even sentence. These book markers make a great gift for any student or book lover!
Cut out arrow shapes from the felt. There are various styles and sizes of arrow you could do, just make sure the arrow isn’t too small for your paper clip. If the arrow shape is tricky to figure out, use a fabric pen to make an arrow out of a rectangle connected to a triangle.
Sew the arrow onto the paper clip, lining the paperclip up with the base of the arrow, opening side towards the arrow’s point. Sewing will be more secure than glue here, but you could also carefully use glue. Sew half-way through the felt’s thickness, so that the paperclip is secured but stitches don’t show on the other side. As you sew, check that you haven’t sewn closed any parts of the paperclip that need to be free to receive the paper. I’m speaking from prior experience here!
Your arrow book marker is ready, make a few more for a very handy set of reader’s friends!
