This will be the front of the corner bookmark, so choose the color of felt that you want showing on the front.

Step 3

The pumpkin pattern has three pieces in varying sizes of oval shapes. 

Place the middle pumpkin pattern (the larger one) slightly covering the bottom sides of the stem and vine. Bring the end of the vine piece to lay on top of the pumpkin oval.

Step 4

Using a matching color of thread, hand stitch the top part of the pumpkin shape to the bookmark base. Make sure to stitch the pumpkin, stem, and vine together, as well.

Step 7

Sew the small leaf piece on the side of the pumpkin across from the vine. You will only need a few stitches using a matching shade of thread.

A small x-shaped stitch on the end of the vine will hold it down to the pumpkin.

Step 8

Place the other leaf underneath the pumpkin in the corner under the edge of the pumpkin. 

The small polka dots can be added underneath the pumpkin in any way you would like.

Sew the leaf to the base with a matching thread color. Then, using a small x-shaped stitch, attach the small circles.

Step 10

Hand stitch the straight edges of the bookmark corner together using a matching thread that matches the color of the front piece. Do not stitch the rounded edge.

We used a blanket stitch around the edges.

Tie a knot in the thread to secure when done.
