February is often filled with rainy days here in Portland, which makes us want to slow down, get cozy on the couch, and craft. Along with crafting, another fun indoor activity is reading. And this embroidered bookmark combines both!
If you are new to embroidery, this DIY bookmark is a great craft project for beginners. Just follow along with our tutorial below, and let us know if you have any questions.

Stop, drop, and craft
Illustrated by Emily, our embroidered bookmark features pretty snowdrop flowers. She chose this flower in particular because it is one of the first flowers to bloom during late winter and early spring. Plus it is also a flower we like to make around this time of year.
When you are done crafting your embroidered bookmark, you can start using it right away to mark your place in whatever book you’re reading. Or, if you know another avid reader, you can always give them this bookmark as a gift. We’d love to see your version of this project, so feel free to use other colors of floss to make different variations.
