Then I made this cute heart bookmark to match:
You Will Need:
A small piece of felt
A piece of pretty fabric
Heat N Bond and an iron
A needle and thread or sewing machine
First, cut out a felt heart, a square of pretty fabric slightly larger than the felt heart and a strip of felt slightly smaller than the width of your heart.
Stitch the strip of felt to the back of the heart like so...
Then iron the fabric to the heat n bond, trace and cut out a heart.
Iron that to your felt heart, covering the stitching, trim off any felt peeking around the edges and you're done!
How cute does it look peeking over the edge of my book?
I made this cute pom pom one today too - tutorial found here. Theres is much fluffier and rounder than mine, but I like my little scruffball :) Matches the cover of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower much better than my cutesy heart bookmark, don't you think? I'm aaalllll about aestetics lately :)
By the way, the verdict is still out on whether or not I love The Perks of Being a Wallflower in book form as much as I loved the movie. The movie is simply uh-mazing! If you haven't seen it, see it! It is so beautiful and sad and weird and funny and ohmygosh - I cried and smiled at the same time! The book is written in letter form, which I think is why I am halfway through and not completely "into it" yet, if you know what I mean. It also doesn't have the flashbacks of the movie, which is weird, cos they would make much more sense written than they did on the screen. Also, I love Emma Watson! I envy her, I want to be her best friend and I want to be her all at the same time! She is so classy, so beautiful, so chic! If I ever met her I think I'd either cry or scare her off by hugging her so tight she couldn't breathe and then getting dragged away by her bodyguards or something. I just love her and what a huge part of my life she is (what with the Harry Potter series and all) without her even knowing! She has been my role model since I was about 12, and what a great role model for a teenager has she been!
Before I get too carried away, here is the trailer for The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I beg you to watch it, it will just leave you breathless!
