Feather Directions
bookmark step 1 STEP 1. Cut the bookmark shapes out of felt. Pattern HERE.
bookmark step 2 STEP 2. Braid the embroidery thread. You’ll need 4 braided strands about 15 inches long.
bookmark step 3 STEP 3. Tie a peacock feather onto your first strand. Used a simple square knot around the quill of the feather.
bookmark step 4 STEP 4. Continue tying square knots (this will make a spiral shape) around the quill until secure. Trim any extra thread. If you’d like to embellish with beads, slip those on now.
bookmark step 4 STEP 5. Now we’ll sew together the peacock body. Stack the felt pieces as pictured, placing the four braided and feathered strands in between the two main body pieces. Pin everything in place and sew around the perimeter.
bookmark step 4 STEP 6. Add any final touches, such as extra stitching, jewels, or extra feathers. Here we’ve added a little plumage feather to the head and a jeweled eye. You can leave your braided strands free, or go ahead and braid those together as well for a tighter bookmark.
bookmark step 4 STEP 7. Here is the most important step; grab a cup of warm tea, snuggle up in a comfy chair, and read a good book. Take a break between chapters to admire your elegant new bookmark.
